Pumpkin Windspinner Window Decoration 

I love these croche wind spinners I am crocheting lots of the spinners just now for some home decoration in my sunroom, and now My grandson is obsessed with these wind spinners.

 So I have been busy crocheting several themed wind spinners for him, since the Autumn/ Fall season celebrations are nearly upon us I thought how about a lovely Pumpkin themed wind spinner. These would make amazing crochet home decor ideas for Thanksgiving and Halloween

When crocheting the Pumpkin I use the Method of YARN UNDER for the Single crochet, it gives a much nicer finish and is not so ‘gappy’) 

Yarn under Single crochet sometimes you will see it written as  YuSc 

1. Insert hook into the Nxt stitch
2. Yarn UNDER, pull up a loop (2 Loops on hook) 
3. Yarn OVER, Pull through both loops 


You can Make the yarn spinners as long as you want. Just make the Chain as long as you would like. 

Make a chain any number you wish I made 81 chains to start  this wind spinner

You can USe ANY yarn and ANY suitable hook for your yarn. 


1. I used less than 1 x 1 25g of Black and 25 g of Orange

2.  3.500 mm hook. 

3. Some stuffing 

4. Googly eyes and a little black yarn for the mouth (IF you wish) 

Pattern Written in US terms 

Please note before starting to crochet the wind spinner

as the spiral grows and curls You may find it begins to twist out of shape simply twist the spiral all in the same direction 

You will work in ROWS until the last stitch where you will finish. Breaking yarn and weave in ends. 

Fasten off the last stitch by working as normal but by pulling your yarn through the last stitch completely. 


Working EVERY ROW in the SAME direction

(where you created the BACKLOOP single crochets)

Take the yarn on your needle thread through these front loops and gently draw top to bottom together. (this will make your first segment of the pumpkin)

Repeat around. 

I attached the pumpkin to the Bottom of the wind spinner. 

Leaving a Longtail to tie the tassel on with 

Make a simple tassel 

Wrap yarn several times around a small book. CUT AT ONE SIDE 

Tie together slightly down from the Top Loop. And use the yarn from the bottom of the pumpkin to attach the tassel 

You can Decorate finish adding eyes and a mouth if you wish.
