Crochet these fun pumpkin shaped pots. Perfect for filling with treats at Halloween. They would make great prizes for the best costume winner at a party!
These will also make lovely Fall Harvest home decorations with the added bonus of being able to store little bits and bobs inside.

You can use any yarn size for these pumpkins, or even double up strands to make them larger. Just use a suitable hook size for your yarn, so that your stitches are compact enough not to let the stuffing show through.

I have used Chunky/Bulky weight acrylic yarn with a 6mm hook. My pot measures approximately 15cm/6” in diameter to the widest point and has an internal pot measurement of 7.5cm/3” wide by 6cm/2.5” deep. An ideal size to hold a large handful of individually wrapped sweets.

You will need:
Chunky/Bulky weight yarn - approx. 70g/105yds of Orange or your chosen pumpkin colour and 5g/8yds of Green or stalk colour (You can use any weight yarn to adjust the finished size, use this as a guide),
6mm crochet hook or size suited for your chosen yarn,
Yarn needle,
Scissors,
A stitch marker,
Toy stuffing (polyester fibrefill) approx. 20g for the size shown.
