2 sizes of stuffed pumpkins knit up using the same pattern, just different needle sizes.

The large one measures approximately 6″ in diameter and is knit with 2 strands of worsted weight wool on size US10 (6mm) needles and the smaller one is knit with 1 strand of worsted weight on US7 (4.5mm) needles and is approximately 5″ in diameter.

The 9 ribs of the pumpkin are separated by a line of purl stitches which are wrapped with yarn later for shaping. The stem is knit separately and sewn onto the pumpkin at the end.

Make one, make both, or make a whole bunch.
