Crochet Pumpkin Pattern:

Begin with a slip knot

1: Ch 32, HDC into the 3rd ch from the hook.

Yarn over, insert your hook into the chain, yarn over again, pull up a loop and draw your loop through all 3 loops on your hook.

2: Ch 2, turn your work and HDC across (30)

3-12: HDC across (30)

Remember to count the number of stitches at the end of every row. Chain 2 at the end of each row, turn and continue across until you reach 12 rows. Leave an extra long tail of yarn.

Crochet Pumpkin Process

How to create the pumpkin shape:

1. Fold the work in half, seams together. Sew the ends together. You can do this by either slip stitching or sewing the ends together with a tapestry needle. Make sure not to leave any gaps so there are no holes in the pumpkin.

2. Now, weave the bottom circle closed by going in and out every couple of stitches with the long yarn tail. You can use a whip stitch or loosely sew with a darning needle and then pull tight to close. Weave through the stitches together to tighten the bottom.

3. Turn the work inside out and then stuff pumpkin with polyfil. Stuff it well because when you make your pumpkin ridges, your pumpkin will get shorter and smaller so you want to make sure you’ve got lots of filling to keep it nice and plump!

4. Weave the yarn end in and out of the top stitches and then pull to cinch closed. Go through the stitches to tighten just as you to close up the bottom.

5. To make the pumpkin ridges, take the end of yarn along the outside of your pumpkin and go through the center of the pumpkin bottom and then up through the top and pull tight. Continue doing this till you’re happy with the amount of ridges. Weave your end in and out of the pumpkin to secure and hide your tail.
