Little Crochet Pumpkin Pattern – Free. Feeling very Autumnal outside today so I got my crochet hooks out and made a cute little crochet pumpkin. Look how cute he is!
You could make this into a keyring or add a piece of ribbon / yarn to the top of the head, like I have, to hang it up or leave it as a small soft plushie, you choose!
Little Crochet Pumpkin Pattern you will need:
- 4mm crochet hook
- Jaffa Stylecraft Special DK yarn from Deramores – https://tidd.ly/385q5aU

- SS, Fasten off (leaving a long piece of yarn for making segments)
Using the long piece leftover after fastening off, thread a darning needle and sew straight through centre hole at the top to centre hole at the bottom. Bring thread up on outside of pumpkin and back through the top hole. Do this six times leaving a similar gap between each pumpkin segment.
Once you have six segments on the pumpkin, pull thread to tighten all segments to sort of squish it into a pumpkin shape. Once you are happy with the shape, sew into bottom of hole to secure and fasten off.
(Bring thread through pumpkin and cut off excess to hide leftover thread inside pumpkin).

If using yarn for a hanging the pumpkin, use left over strand of yarn from stalk. Sew through the stalk and repeat with the beginning tail of yarn, tie these together at stalk. Measure approximately 10cm in length to ends of yarn and knot to form a loop.
Or attach a keyring attachment.
