Fall decor has never been faster with the Gourdgeous (Gourds, get it?) Knit Pumpkins. Any beginner can make these in no time, using only a knit tube or rectangle sewn into a pumpkin shape. Each ball of recommended yarn makes 2 pumpkins. Customize the look by switching up colors, yarn thickness and needle size, or stem material.

Photo tutorial instructions are for both knitting flat or in the round.

No gauge; finished pumpkin size depends on amount of stuffing. Sample pumpkin is 6in wide and 3.5in tall.
