These pumpkins are very quick and easy to knit. In no time you will have a beautiful collection to display at Halloween or Autumn or Harvest Festival.

Each decorative pumpkin is knitted flat and seamed. The shaping is easily added after you have sewn up and stuffed your pumpkin. I explain how to do this with fully illustrated instructions.

You can make the stalks either by knitting flat and seaming or working an I-cord (Instructions for both methods are included)

This pattern is for DK (worsted weight yarn) However, do feel free to try other yarns, to create your own personal pumpkin collection.
For alternate yarns use the manufacturers recommended needle size.

Thicker yarn will give a bigger pumpkin, thinner yarn will give a smaller pumpkin!
