Crochet Pinecone Amigurumi Ornament

Pine cones always come in handy to decorate your home for Christmas or Fall. But what if you cannot find any cones around where you live? Well, as a crocheter, I say let’s crochet a pinecone Amigurumi!

In a forest, pinecones are essential because they carry and spread pine seeds so that more trees can grow. Besides helping the forest stay healthy, pinecones are a source of food for small animals, such as squirrels.

Throughout history, pinecones carried much symbolism for humans. Most importantly, since they carry tree seeds, cones are associated with the generation of new life, possibly making them so popular as Christmas decorations.

So, if you also love pinecones but prefer to leave the real ones in the forest, join me and crochet a pinecone amigurumi with my free pattern!

You can use your crocheted pinecone as a Christmas tree ornament but you could also add it to a decorative Christmas or Fall wreath.
