This little pumpkin is so easy to make and its beginner friendly! All the you need to do is crochet a rectangle and do a little seaming and ta-da! You have an adorable little pumpkin.
Because of the miniature size, these pumpkins work up incredibly quickly! You can easily make one of these in an afternoon or evening. By the end of the week you will have an entire patch of crochet pumpkins!
I love the mini size of these pumpkins – it makes them so stinken’ cute! But if you would like to adjust the size, don’t worry! This pumpkin is incredibly easy to modify. Simply increase the number of foundation chains to make it taller. To make the pumpkin wider, continue repeating row 2.
I have an ad-free, print-friendly PDF of this pattern. But I have also included 2 other pumpkin patterns in the listing! So you get 3 different pumpkin patterns for the price of one!
Enjoy the free pattern below!
50 yards of worsted weight (4) yarn
• I used 1 skein of Lion Brand’s Touch of Alpaca in Goldenrod.
H/5.00mm crochet hook
2 inch stick
Hot glue gun
Scraps of leather
1) This pattern is written in American Crochet Terms.
2) The ch 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a st
3) The pumpkin is worked in flat and seamed together
The size will vary depending on the amount of stuffing in the pumpkin. But the approximate size is 2 inches tall and 3 ¾ inches in diameter.
Sl st: Slip stitch
Sc: Single crochet
Row 1: 1 sc in second ch from hook and in every ch across (16). Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: In the FRONT LOOP only of every st, work 1 sc in every st (16). Ch 1, turn.
Repeat row 2 for a total of 33 rows. Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Fold the rectangle in half and seam up the side.
Cinch one side closed, fill with stuffing and cinch the other side closed.
To make the indentions, wrap the yarn around to the other side and insert the needle through the middle on the other side and pull the needle up through. Pull slightly to make a more defined indention.
Dab a little glue in the middle and insert the stick. Cut some leaves out of leather and glue them next to the stick. To finish it off, tie some twine or string around the “stem”.
