Free Pumpkin Crochet Pattern

    This free pumpkin crochet pattern will help you create crochet pumpkins in 2 different sizes. They make beautiful decorations for autumn/fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving. By all means you can make as little or many as you like, although I chose to make 3 to create a little display ready for Halloween. What’s more everyone commented on how beautiful they looked! So I also made crochet pumpkin bunting to match.

    Pumpkin description

    The pumpkins have a lovely ribbed texture. Although I decided to make mine with mustard and orange yarn I’m sure they would also look great in other colors too! In detail the small pumpkin measures 6cm tall by 10cm wide. Then the medium crochet pumpkin is a little larger and measures 8cm tall by 11cm wide. I used DK yarn with the recommended hook size, 4mm. Obviously, if you decided to use a different weight yarn as well as a different sized hook your pumpkins would subsequently differ in size.

    How to crochet a pumpkin

    The pumpkin crochet pattern is beginner friendly. Although you will also need some knowledge of sewing to complete the project. Nevertheless, the pumpkins work and quickly and are super easy to make. Where as I used DK yarn to make mine, this pumpkin crochet pattern is equally suitable for other yarn weights. As long as you use the recommended hook displayed on the packaging. As well as your chosen yarn and a crochet hook, you’ll also need some toy stuffing and a tapestry needle to complete the pattern.
