How to Crochet a Pumpkin - the Easy Way!

After featuring knitting patterns on the blog for years, I decided to branch out and include some crochet patterns as well! The first pattern is for these easy-to-make pumpkins. These pumpkins are great for fall decorating. They can be placed on a mantel or bookcase or together in a large, decorative bowl.

Best of all? They’re simple to crochet! The pumpkins are worked flat using a single crochet. Then, they are folded over and seamed, gathered and stuffed. The stem is created by picking up stitches around the top and working in a single crochet for a few rounds.

This crochet project is a great way to make use of scrap yarn!

Yarn: weight #4 yarn and corresponding crochet hook

Also needed: Yarn needle, fiber fill

Chain 17 sts.

Turn the chain over and Single Crochet in the back ridges of each chain.

Once the row is finished, make a turning chain and turn the work over. Single crochet in the back of each chain. Repeat, making a turning chain each time you finish a row. Work until your piece measures 10 inches. Cut the end of the yarn, leaving a long tail.

To assemble the pumpkin: Fold the piece over and sew the side seam. Run a stitch around the bottom of the pumpkin and pull to gather.

Stuff the pumpkin and push the needle through the inside (including the fiber fill). Run a stitch around the top of the pumpkin. Pull to gather. Weave in ends.

Pick up the stitches around the top of the pumpkin. Work in single crochet for a few rounds. Break yarn and sew the top of the stem closed.
