I can't stop making these rustic fall pumpkins for everyone!


Stacks of crocheted pumpkins with sticks used as stems next to a large mug that says "pumpkin is everything."

Anyone else feel like they might have a bit of a pumpkin problem?! No matter how many I make, I still want more. There are just so many fun yarn colors and they make the perfect fall decor! And because they are so quick and everyone loves them, they are really easy to give away which is good because otherwise we'd be buried up to our eyeballs in them in my house.

Three crocheted pumpkins - one gold small, one orange medium and one fall colored variegated.

Last year I created a Rustic Pumpkin pattern that I made on repeat all fall. And even though I knew I didn't need any new pumpkins this year, this yarn from Hobby Lobby called out to me and now I've made another pile. Who can you think of that needs a pumpkin or two?

optional to decorate the pumpkin:

A stack of three crocheted pumpkins - one large variegated, one medium orange and one small blue - all stacked with a stick for a stem.

Size and yardage:

  • The small pumpkin is about 3 1/ 2 inches tall before adding a stem and I used about 63 yards of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn Print in Fireworks Show.

  • The medium pumpkin is about 4 inches tall before adding a stem (I did squish mine down quite a bit as I was making the sections so yours could be a bit taller). I used about 114 yards of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn Print in Fireworks Show.

  • The large is about 6 inches tall before adding the stem and I used 189 yards of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn Print in Fireworks Show.

Stitches used:

ch = chain

sl st = slip stitch

sc = single crochet

hdc = half double crochet

blo – crochet in the back loops only

hdc in front third loop – watch the video up above to learn this stitch


Notes:

-Rows one and two together create a camel stitch.

*I first saw this technique at www.hookedbyrobin.com where you can find tutorials for a ton of really cool crochet stitches.

You can find the free written pattern and a full tutorial for the Rustic Pumpkins here.


Just for an FYI, made the sections of my variegated pumpkins with a coordinating color yarn. I used I Love This Yarn in Sungold for the large pumpkin in a stack of three, Loops & Threads Luxe Merino in Sedona for the medium pumpkin in the stack of two, and Loops & Threads Impeccable in Blue Moon for the small pumpkin in the stack of two.


And, I have some pretty fall gift tags you can download for free to attach to any pumpkins you can bear to part with.
