Little Pumpkin Crochet Pattern

Pumpkin Crochet Pattern for Halloween

 

I love autumn!  I love pumpkins and gourds and colorful leaves and mums … I love all those burnt colors of reds and golds and browns … and I love crocheting little autumn lovelies to decorate my home. And, of course, I love being able to share my patterns with you. I hope you enjoy this sweet little pumpkin pattern!

Little Pumpkin Crochet Pattern

Here’s what you need:

  • Orange and brown worsted weight cotton yarn
  • G hook / 4 mm
  • tapestry needle
  • fiberfill stuffing or yarn scraps

Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart.

For best results, use the invisible decrease (sc2tog).  For a tutorial, see Planet June.

Finished pumpkin measures approx 2½ in. high and 10½ in. in circumference.

Fasten off leaving a tail of about 48 in.

To create a pumpkin shape, use a tapestry needle to pull the tail through the center of the pumpkin, wrap the yarn around the side, and pull back through the center. Give a gentle tug to make a slight indent. Repeat this five more times to create evenly spaced indents around the pumpkin.  If desired, you can go around again, working over the same yarn indents until you get the result you want.

    We do not have Halloween month in India, but my daughter and her friends do have fun time with Halloween:) She makes Halloween things on her own. The next generation is globally compatible with celebrations and having fun ! :)

    What a cute idea! I’m pinning this for later because I just don’t have any yarn that fits. A pink pumpkin might be weird ;-)
