EASY CROCHET PUMPKIN DECOR

In this post today I will be sharing with you an updated version of the pumpkin I made last year. This one is a tad different. Instead of working in the round, I made this as a flat piece and I held two strands of yarn together! Makes for an easy crochet pumpkin, especially for beginners. Scroll down for all the details! Have fun!

Note: I found out the yarn I used may be new to Hobby Lobby so you might not find it online. This pattern can still easily be made with any worsted yarn holding two strands together. Or by itself really, sizes may just be different.

Feel free to post pictures of your finished projects and/or links to your shops so all can see! I love when you tag me @arianaehall on all social media!

  • Medium Worsted weight (#4) yarn 

I used :

Yarn Bee Nature’s Nook (Approximately 60 yards of two colors per pumpkin) in

  • Natural (cream)
  • Russet (gold)
  • Sage Gray
  • Bare Blush

  • Sticks for the center (optional) I found mine in the Christmas section at Hobby Lobby.
  • Yarn Needle
  • Poly-fil
  • Scissors

Abbreviations:

Stitches:

CH – chain

ST – stitch (stitch space)

Sl St – slip stitch

SC – single crochet

DC – double crochet

FO – Fasten Off

PATTERN-

Once you have your two colors you want to combine together grab your K hook and let’s get started.

Chain 20

Row 1 – DC in the 3rd chain from the hook, SC in the next ch. *DC, SC to the end of the ch ending with an SC. (18) CH 2, turn.

Row 2 – *DC in the first st, SC in the next. Repeat from * ending with an SC. (18) CH 2, turn.

Rows 3 25 – Repeat Row 2.

When finished chain 1 and leave a long enough tail to sew the shorter side (the starting and final rows) together using a whip stitch.  (I used one strand for this) This is the wrong side facing out.

if your tail is long enough continue weaving through the bottom opening to close and cinch together. Make a knot to secure it.

Flip inside out.

Fill in with Poly-fil but only 3/4 of the way. If you put too much it will be too dense to create the dents to create that pumpkin look. I learned less is more here.

Grab some more yarn and weave through the top and cinch closed the top. Make a knot to secure it. ( I used one strand for this part)

Using some more extra yarn, (just one strand) add four dents going through the center of the pumpkin and pulling tight to get that look.

You can hot glue the preferred choice, in this case for my own pumpkins, wooden stick.

There is a video down below that I sped up to show you the process fairly quickly. Hope you enjoy it!

Happy Crocheting!
