Conkers may be a bit confusing to those of you outside the UK. Please look at my blog article, if you want a bit of an explanation.
Once again I have gone for realism with this pattern, and am going to link it to my horse chestnut leaf pattern, which I have just posted. You can purchase both patterns together for a discount.
Forgot to say that this pattern is knitted on two needles - no tricky knitting in the round.
I have recently updated this pattern, with the addition of a conker shell. I love the cute little conker peeking out. You can read about this at http://ginxcraft.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/conkers-revisited.html
