  3. Bring yarn over side and insert needle into bottom center, pull needle through center top and pull yarn tight.
  4. Bring yarn over side and insert needle into bottom center, pull needle through and pull yarn over other side, pull yarn tight.
  5. Bring yarn over side and insert needle into bottom center, pull needle through and pull yarn through other side, pull yarn tight.
  6. Repeat one more time, dividing pumpkin into 4 sections.
  7. Now repeat inserting needle and pulling yarn through between the 4 sections; you will have a total of 8 sections for the pumpkin. Weave in yarn, trim.

NOTE: Make sure you pull the yarn tight.
