An overwhelmingly vast majority of DIY recipes in the game can be found by buying them from Nook's Cranny, finding them in the balloon presents or beach bottles, or getting them from crafting villagers. However, there's a couple recipes that you "self-learn" after you've fulfilled certain conditions. For example, after digging up my first manila clam, I automatically learned how to craft fish bait. Or after catching a second boot while fishing, I learned the recycled boots recipe. What other self-learned DIY recipes are available, and what triggers your character to learn them?

  • I think it might just be the bait, the trash recycling, and the Bunny Day egg outfits. – Raven Dreamer Jun 4 at 22:30
  • Golden tool recipes are all learned after completing varying numbers of tasks. The recipe for a pitfall can also be learned by digging up a pitfall. – Chase Sandmann Jun 5 at 19:03
  • Man, those sound like good answers... cough – Mage Xy Jun 7 at 0:06
