This chunky pumpkin works up quickly with large, circular knitting needles and super bulky yarn! It’s easy enough for beginners and has a rustic, store-bought look. The color possibilities are endless and you can be creative with the fun little stem. They work great as last-minute fall gifts, or to use as décor in your own home.

1 skein Cascade Magnum in Doeskin Heather or comparable #6 Super Bulky Yarn (Pattern uses less than a skein)
