Free Crochet Pumpkin Pattern

Happy Thursday friends! Today is my release day for the 30 Days of Cozy and I am so excited to share these sweet farmhouse crochet pumpkins with you!

If you're just learning about 30 Days of Cozy it is a super fun event hosted by Pam of Made With A Twist in a collaboration with many awesome designers to bring you a new free (sometimes 2!) crochet pattern all with home d├ęcor in mind. This event has now ended, but you can still find the FREE pattern for these farmhouse style pumpkins below.

I loved diving into my cotton yarn stash for these pumpkins! I used approximately 95 yards (about half a skein) to make each one. I used a variety of I Love This Cotton Yarn from Hobby Lobby and Dishie from WeCrochet, both worked up so nicely!

If you don't have cotton yarn on hand, no worries, any worsted weight (size 4) yarn will work perfectly.

You may make and sell items made from this pattern but please do not sell, share or reproduce the actual pattern. If you sell finished items online (Etsy, etc) please provide a link to the pattern and credit to me as the designer, thank you. I hope you enjoy this pattern!


NOTES -


- Leave a long tail (approximately 10 inches) at the beginning and end of your piece, we will use these for assembling the pumpkin.

- CH 1 at the end of each row does not count as a stitch.

- For ease of pattern each row of the pumpkin will start with a HDC and end with a SL ST. This will create an even texture.



Pumpkin –

CH 33

Row 1: *HDC in the 2nd CH from your hook, SL ST in the next*, *repeat until you reach the end of the row, CH 1 and turn (32)

Row 2: *HDC in the first ST, SL ST in the next*, *repeat until the end of the row, CH 1 and turn (32)

Rows 3-45: Repeat row 2

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.



Stem –


Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC

Round 2: SC INC in each ST (12)

Rounds 3-7: SC around (12)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.

 



Assembly –


- Fold your pumpkin panel in half, lining up your beginning row with your last row. With your tapestry needle whip stitch across to close. I placed my needle through the inside loops to create a more solid seam.


 




- You now have a tube. Weave your needle in and out of the top portion, cinch tight to close and secure with a knot. This will be the base of your pumpkin.


 


-
Fill your pumpkin ¾ full of stuffing and weave through the top in the same fashion as above. Cinch tight to close and push your needle through the middle to the bottom base. Pull tight to give a sunken look and secure with a knot. Fasten off and weave in your end.


 


- Lastly, lightly stuff your stem and sew onto the top of your pumpkin.



Your crochet pumpkin is complete! I hope you have enjoyed making this pattern. Be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook, I'd love to see your make!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stephanie
