Pattern now available here: http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/2008/06/little-acorn-pa.html
Would have put on craftster but it is too detailed

 wanted to design something that would bring knitters and crocheters together!! I figure we could make them these and they could give us the socks they Knit? More details about the inspiration on my blog http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/2008/06/little-acorn-pa.html

That's adorable. It's time to bridge the gap between the knitters and crocheters.

Brilliant! Tell us more about the big wooden beads on the side - does one of them serve as a hinge, or are they strictly decorative? So cool!
