A good size! 8 wide, and 9 ½ inches tall! This is fairly easy to knit! Simple increasing and decreasing and an easy texture stitch pattern for top of acorn! A good gift to take along when you go to someones house for Thanksgiving dinner! Perfect for fall decorating too! A nice double thick, potholder to keep hands from getting burned. Uses worsted weight yarns, knitting needles, US # 7. It is fun to make!
