Crochet pattern for a decorative gourd.

See my Pumpkins and Gourds Bundle for more matching patterns

Using double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn and a 3.5mm (US: size E-4) crochet hook, the finished gourd will be approximately 10cm (4 inches) long (not counting the stalk).
But using a different weight yarn and an appropriate hook, you can make them the size of your choice.

The fully-illustrated, easy-to-follow pattern includes detailed notes on your choosing your yarn and lots of helpful tips. The pattern shows you how to make a neat colour change without an unsightly ‘jog’. Also included is a tutorial on making an invisible decrease.

You will need:

  • yarn of your choice (help provided in pattern)
  • crochet hook
  • stuffing material (help provided in the pattern)
  • a blunt yarn needle
  • sharp scissors

This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.

Important features of my crochet patterns:
My crochet patterns include BOTH a detailed ‘tutorial-style’ set of instructions with colour photos, AND a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions.
I have developed this style because I find I like to see a lot of detail the first time I work a pattern, but if I then work the same piece again, I don’t need the pictures, etc, and indeed they can get in the way when I just want a quick reminder of what I’m doing. The PDF is also structured so that the succinct version, with an area for your own notes, is on a single page, making it easy to just take one sheet of paper with you if you have printed it out for quick reference on the move.

This pattern comes with my full support. If you have any difficulties, please contact me!

I’d love to see what you make. Please share pictures of your finished gourds on your favourite social media using #LittleConkers.
