Ribbed Crochet Pumpkin
"Enjoy a rustic fall pumpkin that’s easy to crochet and works up quickly in bulky yarn! RIBBED PUMPKIN PATTERN DETAILS This simple pumpkin is crocheted flat and seamed, then the bottom is gathered. Once you have the bottom gathered you stuff it firmly, then gather the top. This will give you the general pumpkin shape. From there you run your yarn needle through the middle of the pumpkin to make it more squat in shape and if you like you can run the yarn around the sides to give it more definition. Finally, the stem is crocheted in the round starting with a magic ring and then stitched on.
