Happy Halloween and fall! These pumpkins are really fun to make and are just too cute. I hope you enjoy the pattern I’ve made.

4mm crochet hook. 4/Medium weight yarn in orange, green, and brown. Black embroidery thread. 8mm safety eyes. Stuffing. Scissors. Tapestry needle.

Additional Information:
Difficulty: Easy
This pumpkin is very easy to make! We make a circle and give it the pumpkin definition by sewing from the middle of the top of the pumpkin to the bottom of the pumpkin, and pull this yarn tight to give it the crease. We then make the stem and leaf, and finally a smile.
(Specific yarn I used is Red Heart’s Pumpkin for orange, Big Twists green and brown)

With tail of yarn

After sewing the bottom of the pumpkin shut, insert the same yarn into the very middle of the bottom of the pumpkin (Pic 1), and pull the yarn to the top middle of the pumpkin (Pic 2). Reinsert into the very bottom middle of the pumpkin (Pic 3), and pull back up to the top middle of the pumpkin (Pic 4). Pull fairly tight. This creates the crease of the pumpkin. (Pic 5). Repeat this process 5-8 times. I did this a total of 8 times. Once finished, make a knot with remaining yarn and weave into the pumpkin.


In Brown

Round 1: 6 Sc in Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: In BLO, *Sc* all around (6)
Round 3-5: In BOTH Loops, *Sc* all around (6)
Finish off and stuff. Pin to the top middle of the pumpkin and sew on.


In Green

Round 1: Ch 15. Dc in 2nd Ch from hook. Dc 2 more times in same St. Dc 3 times in each of the next 13 Ch.
Finish off and twist to make curly. Pin to the right of the stem and sew on.

Smile Assembly

With Black Embroidery Thread

Insert needle slightly below and in the middle of the eyes. Keep 2 stitches between the smile (Pic 1). Pull thread through. Reinsert needle in the original area (Pic 2) and pull. Weave in ends.

All done!
