Then, run the yarn outside the pumpkin from the top hole to the bottom hole where the slices were formed. Do this to all slices, then fasten off and weave in ends.

- From here you are going to create the stalk. Thread the tapestry needle and run it under the bottom part of the leaves. Insert the needle through the center hole and go up and out. Now, make a slip not very close to the center hole, and chain 5. Sc 4 from 2nd ch from the hook. Fasten off. Leave a tail for sewing the leaves to the pumpkin or cut the extra yarn and glue the leaves to the pumpkin top. Enjoy your Amigurumi Pumpkin!!!
