Amigurumi acorn rattles

Before and after the year change I worked on an amigurumi acorn. It was a customer order and kind of a sad story.

The rattle is a gift for a 4 months old baby who was just recently diagnosed a lymphoma. While I was crocheting, it wasn`t clear yet as they were waiting for the results.

It`s horrible to think of a little human being starting his life in a way like this. But I was happy to create something with love for this little guy. And I knew from the beginning that the acorn must have the friendliest smile on Earth. It will give the little guy courage to fight.

Actually, making the acorn turned out quite a lot of work as I wasn`t satisfied with the first example at all. I unraveled it and made two others. If you look at the photos closely you`ll notice that although they seem to be identical, the hat is actually attached totally differently.

Also, I couldn`t choose between the handle and the teether, so I made both versions and let them choose. They chose the version with the wooden teether.
