The Big Acorn Race is a delightful story filled with whimsy, magic, and fun. It inspires the imagination… and then gives readers the tools to crochet the characters so that they can let that imagination run wild. Original, unique, and unbelievably adorable!!” —Kathryn Vercillo of Crochet Concupiscence

“In The Big Acorn Race, Jennifer Olivarez tells a charming story set in a cheerful crocheted world, and offers fun projects with friendly illustrations and lots of step-by-step photos.” —Suzann Thompson, author of Cute Crochet World

The Big Acorn Race is super cute and extremely creative. I was particularly impressed with the level of detail and photography in Jennifer’s instructions!” —Twinkie Chan, author of Twinkie Chan’s Crocheted Abode à la Mode

“We love how The Big Acorn Race not only tells a heartwarming story but also inspires readers to create a mini crochet universe of their own.” —Liz & Jimmy Reed of Cuddles and Rage

“The story of The Big Acorn Race is cute and just the right length for kids with short attention spans. And what kid wouldn’t love to have the characters of their book to play with? Jennifer’s instructions are so very well done and easy to follow. I just can’t wait to pull out my crochet hook and yarn and get started!” —Lois Weaver of Zo Zo Fiber Arts

The Big Acorn Race by Jennifer Olivarez

A whimsical storybook and crochet pattern book in one!

The story takes readers on an adventure in a colorful crochet world. Here we follow three little squirrels, Hodge and Podge and their friend Eric, as they compete to see who can get an acorn out of a tree first. It sounds simple, but there’s a catch: they aren’t allowed to climb the tree. They each must use their wit and imagination to find an alternative solution. What will they invent and who will win?

But the fun doesn’t stop when the story ends! The Big Acorn Race also includes over 15 crochet patterns and projects to make the squirrels and their inventions, as well as accessories for you inspired by the story. Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and tutorials will guide you in making your own squirrel characters, and the colorful photographs will inspire you to imagine new adventures for these crocheted friends.

Known for her ability to create patterns that are both simple in technique but truly creative and entertaining, Jennifer has taken great care to design projects that will be fun for the beginner and experienced crocheter alike.

Available from Amazon.com and other online retailers!
