I made five pumpkins for Autumn and Halloween decoration. All of them were in different sizes and I really love the way they turned out :)
Orange, yellow and brown wool yarns from stash, G-hook 4 mm, tapestry needle ( I used normal needle because I don't remember where I put mine) and polyester filling
I found this the pattern from Petals and Picot, Little Pumpkin Crochet Pattern. I made the first pumpkin exactly like the original pattern, then the other four were a little bit bigger in different sizes.
The first thing I did was the magic ring followed by every rounds as instruction said. Except when I made it bigger I just added more round in between.
I cut the yarn 60" longer for the tail and much longer for the bigger pumpkin.
I stuffed the pumpkin with polyester stuffing and did the last round. Fasten the hole with needle.
Then created the pumpkin shape using the needle by pull the tail in the center of pumpkin.
After the pumpkin done, I did the steam with brown yarn, longer and bigger than the original pattern. Also decrease the stitch (sc2tog).
Sew the steam onto the pumpkin using the needle. Done!
And here are the results :)
Also, I shared this post to Show Off Saturday
Have a lovely weekend to everyone!
