{Halloween and a Crochet Pumpkin Pattern}

{Images via pumpkin pie and autumn leaves}
Fall is associated with warm colours... It's one of my fave seasons. And of course let's not forget about Halloween...Pumpkins everywhere!!! Unfortunately Halloween is not celebrated in Greece but who cares?
I always add a Halloween related decoration to the home and of course teach my students at class about Halloween! So this year I decided to crochet a little pumpkin to decorate the home!!!
{Pumpkin Crochet Pattern}
 MATERIALS
  • worsted yarn in orange, brown and green
  • 4mm crochet hook
  •  a small amount of orange yarn to shape the pumpkin
  • yarn needle
THE PATTERN
Pumpkin
Using orange yarn:
R1: Ch 2 then make 6 sc in second ch from hook (6)
R2: 2 sc in each stitch (12)
R3: 1 sc , 2 sc in next stitch, repeat 6 times (18)
R4: 2 sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat 6 times (24)
R5: 3 sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat 6 times (30)
R6: 4 sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat 6 times (36)
R7: 5 sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat 6 times (42)
R8: 6 sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat 6 times (48)
R9-13: sc around (48)
R14: 1 dec, 6 sc, repeat 6 times (42)
R15: 1 dec, 5 sc, repeat 6 times (36)
R16: 1 dec, 4 sc, repeat 6 times (30)
R17: 1 dec, 3 sc, repeat 6 times (24)
Begin to stuff your pumpkin.
R18: 1 dec, 2 sc, repeat 6 times (18)
Continue to stuff.
R19: 1 dec, 1 sc, repeat 6 times (12)
R 20: 6 dec (6)
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Shaping the pumpkin:
Take some orange yarn and divide your pumpkin in  half by wrapping the yarn around, when you have wrapped it around 5-6 times attach it by sewing it on your pumpkin. Repeat the same for the other half. Now when you'll look at your pumpkin from above you will have divided into two halfs. Start dividing each half into quarters repeating the above process. I know it may seem strange and difficult but when you do the half parts you'll understand how it works.

Stalk
Using brown yarn:
R1: Ch 2 then make 6 sc in second ch from hook (6)
R2: 2 sc in each stitch (12)
R3-6: sc in each stitch around (12)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Attach and sew  the stalk to the upper part of your pumpkin.

Leaf
Using green yarn:
R1: ch 26
R2: sc in second ch from hook and in each chain until the end (25)
It will automatically start to curl.
Sew your leaf on the pupkin near to the stalk.

This pattern can easily be adjusted. If you want just make a smaller or bigger pumkin, stalk or leaf.
Happy Halloween!

  7. ..."R3: 1 sc , 2 sc in next stitch, repeat 6 times (18)..." I think I might be misunderstanding the pattern -do I sc in one stitch, then 2 sc in the next stitch, then 1 sc in the next and then 2sc in the one after that? Until a total of 18 stitches?

  8. I think it would look more natural with only one or perhaps 2 wraps in each position. The thicker wraps don't cinch it in enough. I also might try running the thread in between the stitches, giving it an invisible cinch. Nice pattern, it looks cute. Thank you
