Knit in the round and shaped with basic knitting increases and decreases, your knit pumpkin is ready to stuff with no seaming required. You’ll bring these pumpkins out every year, so the effort is well worth your crafting time.

Gauge is not important for this project, although you should use a needle two sizes smaller than what’s recommended for your yarn in order to keep fabric tight enough so stuffing won’t show through. Depending on your unique gauge and amount of stuffing, Finished pumpkin is approximately 4 inches tall and 6 inches wide with a 15 inch circumference

Materials:

80 – 100 yards worsted weight yarn
3.75 mm (US 5) needles, (dpn’s or circular for magic loop)
12 inch pipe cleaner
tapestry needle
stuffing for pumpkin (I used polyester fiberfill)
