This rustic crochet pumpkin is made with T-shirt yarn and is super quick to work up! The pattern is great for all crochet experience levels as well since it’s worked flat, with no increasing or decreasing, and then seamed up and stuffed. The slip stitch pattern also adds a great knit-like accent.
This little darling is sure to charm your decor all through the Autumn season!
You can even crochet up a whole holiday display. Try pairing it up with this little pumpkin crochet pattern or some needle felted leaves and acorns. And don’t forget about this adorable little turkey pattern for Thanksgiving!

Here’s what you will need:
- T-shirt yarn, approx. 160 yd (I used Fab-U-Loop yarn)
- 12.0 mm crochet hook
- fiberfill stuffing
- small stick from the yard
- scissors and yarn needle for finishing
Finished pumpkin as written measures approximately 5 in. wide x 3.5 in. tall.
Row 1: Sl st in second chain from hook and in each chain across – 12 sts.
Row 2: Ch 1, Sl st in the back loop only of each stitch across – 12 sts.
Rows 3 through 23: Repeat Row 2.
Fasten off leaving a tail of about 20 in.
Fold piece in half crosswise so that the beginning edge lines up with the finished edge of Row 23. Using a yarn needle and remaining tail, whip stitch edges together to form a cylinder. Do not fasten off
On the side closest to your needle and tail, close up the side of the cylinder by weaving the needle need through chain loops along edge as shown in the image below. Pull tail to close up hole tightly. Carefully push needle through hole and through other end (the open side of cylinder). Stuff pumpkin with fiberfill stuffing until desired density is achieved. Again close up open end of cylinder by weaving needle through chain loops, but this time do not pull too tight yet. Find a small stick from outside and position it through the remaining opening. Finish tightening the yarn to close up hole. Weave in yarn to secure.
