  • 2 black beads - about 3/4 inch in diameter

Finish off, leaving a long (12-inch) tail.
  5. With tapestry needle, weave one tail back and forth along the long side of the rectangle and pull tightly in order to gather it. (This is either the top or bottom of pumpkin). Weave into the opposite end where you started, secure, and snip. Do this with the other tail along the other long side of the rectangle, but do not snip off tail this time.
  6. With embroidery needle and thread, adorn with eyes and mouth using the picture as guide and stuff with polyester fiberfill. With the other long tail, sew together the two sides of the pumpkin to close up. (You could also put the orange yarn back on the hook and sc down the back).
  7. With G hook and green yarn, ch 2 and make 7sc in the 2nd ch from hook. Join. Sc around for 4 rounds or until stem reaches approximately 1.5 inches (3cm). Finish off leaving a 6-inch tail. Sew the stem to the top of the pumpkin and secure in place.

    Ta-da! Now make a whole bunch so that you can have the cutest pumpkin PATCH out there!

    Note: these pumpkins like to stay inside where it’s warm or safe. They really don’t like front porches, back porches, stoops, but mantles, credenzas, buffets and desks are a-okay!

This is such a cute idea for fall decor! I love pumpkins and this is even better than the real thing since you don't have to worry about it going bad.

I just made a couple of these. Very easy and quick. Went with brown for the stem since they usually aren't green.

my children will love this i will make many

omggggghgggggggggg i freaking love this pumpkin its soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute i just have to make it so i will make many for my family and friends

I suggest doing a needlepoint star a combination of an X and a + in place of the black beads with black yarn and then giving them each a sort of smiley face. I think that would be cuter.

Can you please post the pattern for the little pumpkin?

Kittkatlover, The small pumpkin is there to make you think outside the box... in other words, you have to come up with your own pattern, more or less. The original pattern uses a G hook, which is about mid-way through the range of hook sizes. Go with a smaller hook for a smaller pumpkin. Use sport or baby yarn for a smaller pumpkin. Use about half the stitches called for in the pattern for the larger pumpkin. Use smaller beads for the eyes of the smaller pumpkin. You will come up with something just as cute, and maybe about half the size of the original pattern.

Hi - I am not a crocheter. but I do crochet now and then. I am a charity knitter. I saw this pattern and ended up making 11 of these pumpkins for my physician's little (and younger) patients. When I delivered them, well - all the nurses were thrilled. They were gone in a day, I was told. I did glue black felt faces. It's an easy pattern. If I can make them, anyone can. They weren't as perfect as I don't crochet that well. They were fast to make. They each had their own body shape and face. It was fun to see them all together.

I am confused - do you sew into each sc, ch1 space to increase each row?

bearld2u, As I read the pattern, there are no increases. You simply crochet a rectangle, and then weave in the long tales and gather the long sides of the rectangle. These become the top and bottom of your pumpkin. After you've added the stuffing, you will have the short sides to sew together, which can be done with the tapestry needle, or you can put the orange yarn back on your hook and make a row of single crochet to close that opening. I would choose the latter method myself, as it would then be more in keeping with the other stitches in your pumpkin.

Where are the instructions for the littlest pumpkin? I'd like to make one that size.

I'd like to know how big these little pumpkins are. Can someone help? Thanks.

I'm going to make a bunch to give to my "trick or treaters"
