- 1 skein (I made 5 pumpkins from 1 skein) Aran weight (#4) yarn (Any orange, toffee, beige works) (I used “Vanna’s Choice” for this hat.)
- Small amount of Aran weight (#4) yarn in Dusty Green for the stem (Again, I used “Vanna’s Choice”.)
– Small amount of polyester fiberfill (Used to stuff the pumpkin.)
- 2 feet of raffia or twine
- Crochet Hook, Size I (for pumpkin)
- Crochet Hook, Size G (for stem)
– Yarn Needle (Used for gathering each end of the fabric, working in loose yarn ends and for sewing the stem to the hat.)
Size: One Size
Row 1: In the second chain from the hook, work a single crochet in the back loop only (scblo). Work scblo in each chain across. (16 st) Ch 1. Turn.
Row 2 – 25: Repeat Row 1. (16 st in each row.)
Do NOT fasten off.
Match the short ends of the fabric that you have created and seam them together using a slip stitch at the end of each row and through both layers of fabric. (You should have approximately 25 slip stitches.).
Turn so that the seam is on the inside.
Do NOT fasten off yarn.
Using the yarn needle, work a running stitch around the opening of the pumpkin and pull snuggly. Keep yarn on needle and allow to dangle on outside of pumpkin for now.
Stuff the polyester fibrefill into the pumpkin until it feels nice and full.
Push the needle with yarn, up and through the fibrefill inside of the pumpkin. When you reach the other side of the pumpkin, pull the yarn tightly and work a running stitch around the opening and pull the yarn snugly so that you close the opening completely. Knot and fasten off. Work in loose end.
Using Green yarn and the Size G Crochet Hook, create an I-cord about 1 inch long. Fasten off and leave a length of yarn about 5 inches long. The beginning of the I-cord will be the top of the stem and the length of yarn at the beginning should be pulled into the inside of the stem using the needle. (This finishes off the top of the stem.)
Using the yarn needle, sew the bottom of the I-cord to the top centre of the pumpkin, fasten off and work in ends.
Tie the raffia around the bottom of the stem and make it into a bow.
And, there you have it!! Such a cute decor item ready to decorate you home or for you to give as a lovely gift to family and friends!!
