This cute little pumpkin is simple to make but it has a color fade that makes it unique. Make a set or make one, it’s up to you!

5” across and 3” tall

To make it 5” across and 3” tall, stuff until it is completely full. You may stuff the pumpkins with less to make your pumpkins slightly different sizes. I was also able to make one that was 4.5” across and 2.5” tall and one that was 4” across and almost 2.5” tall, by stuffing different amounts into my pumpkins.

You may also substitute different yarn weights/hook sizes to make the pumpkins different sizes.


Gauge is not important, but I have included measurements in the pattern.
If substituting a different yarn weight/hook size, the measurements are not important.


  • Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn in 2 colors (25 grams each) or Super Bulky 6 Weight Yarn
  • Size P (10 mm) crochet hook (I used a Furls Streamline)
  • Scissors
  • Darning Needle
  • Polyfill or yarn scraps to stuff with
  • Cinnamon Stick or other “stem”
  • Twine
  • Optional: hot glue and glue gun
  • Optional: measuring tape
