Finsbury Squirrel

Introducing my Finsbury Squirrel knitting pattern. Finsbury is 16 cm tall. Most pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. The acorn stalk is i-cord knitted on two double pointed needles (DPNs). You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.


  • Instructions for making the squirrel and acorn.
  • A materials list and recommended yarns.
  • The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.
  • Measurements are in metric.
