Pumpkin Pattern

*note* leave a long tail end for sewing in later

Foundation: Using main colour, ch17

Row 1: dc in back bump of 2nd ch and each chain along (16 stitches)

Row 2: ch1, turn (this does not class as a stitch here and throughout) dc in back loop of first stitch, dc to end. (16 stitches)

Row 3-34: Repeat Row 2

Tie off leaving a long tail end for sewing.

Using a darning needle, sew the sort ends together using whip stitch. Sew in ends.

With other tail end, using a darning needle, weave yarn in and out across the rows around the base of the pumpkin. Pull tight to close opening and sew closed leaving tail attached. 

Stuff pumpkin and thread it into the pumpkin to bring it to the top. Repeat the process that you did on the base of the pumpkin. Further synch in middle of pumpkin by threading through the yarn from top to bottom if required. Tie off and sew in ends.

Using contrasting colour


Insert hook in 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop, insert hook in next ch, pull up a loop (3 loops on hook) 

*Drop 2 loops off the hook (1 remaining), yarn over and pull through remaining loop on hook.

Pick up next dropped loop on the hook, yarn over and pull through one loop on hook.

Pick up remaining dropped loop on the hook, yarn over and pull through one loop on hook. Repeat from * 2 more times.

Tie off leaving a long tail for sewing and sew in short tail end.

Attach stem to the top of the pumpkin


If you would like your pumpkin to be bigger, you can add to your foundation chain. The height of your pumpkin will be roughly two thirds of your foundation chain. Work your rows to approximately double the length of the foundation chain.

Additional rows can be added too the stem to make it longer and can be folded over and sewn if needed to make it thicker.

    Love this project. Made two of them in different sizes and they immediately bring fall into my livingroom.
    Quick to make with some leftover yarn and very clear instructions.
    Thank you!

    I have made lots of these adorable pumpkins. I’ve tried a few other patterns as well, but always come back to this one. Definitely my favourite!
