Gourd Knitting Pattern

Gourd Knitting Pattern- these decorative gourds are perfect for centerpieces and decorating for autumn!

Gourd Knitting Pattern

My knit pumpkins are my favorite autumn decoration. This year I decided to add some ornamental gourds to the mix! I included 4 knitting patterns in this post. The long neck gourds (shown here in orange/green and yellow/orange) are knit on double point needles. The rest of the gourds are knit on straight knitting needles.
