This chunky ribbed pumpkin pattern is a great way to a rustic fall touch to a space while being quick and easy to crochet! Included in this pattern are two different pumpkin sizes along with photos on how to assemble these sweet pumpkins!
As I have started to notice signs of Autumn, my excitement for this beautiful season continues to grow as I readily wait for the cool days of wearing oversized sweaters and cozying up under a blanket with a cup of chai tea. While I am not much of a seasonal decorator, there is one thing that I like to add to rooms to add a little bit of this cozy season and that is pumpkins!
I had every intention of just releasing one pumpkin pattern this year. But I couldn’t resist designing another rustic and cozy pumpkin pattern when Hobbii reached out and asked if I would like to try their new Umami yarn! Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to crochet something chunky and cozy for fall!
This yarn was truly a joy to crochet with. It took me back to the first few years of crocheting, because my favorite yarn to crochet with was super bulky yarn. As I broadened my crochet horizons I discovered other kinds of yarn, and somehow super bulky yarn became an abandoned love. But I was so happy to come back to this cozy yarn weight with this yarn!
Umami is irresistibly soft and chunky, providing ultra warmth for garments and accessories and a cozy look for home decor items. Available in 26 beautiful color ways, there is a color for every style and mood! I especially adore how many of the colors are muted, allowing these colors to be used in a modern and sophisticated piece.
I really enjoyed creating these chunky and cozy pumpkins and I hope you enjoy the free pattern below!
