Easy Crochet Pumpkin Pattern by LisaAuch

Crochet Pumpkin Pattern by LisaAuch

  I use the Method of YARN UNDER for the Single crochet, it gives a much nicer finish and not so ‘gappy’) 
TO Make the Pumpkin you will need 
4.500mm hook 
Orange Yarn 
A little bit of Green yarn 
Start with orange. 
Holding 2 Strands of DK yarn together 


Rnd1:  2 ch, 6 sc into the 2nd ch from hook(6)   
Rnd 2: work 2sc in each st around (12) 
Rnd 3: *sc in nxt st,2sc in nxt * Repeat * *around (18) 
Rnd 4: *sc in nxt 2 sts, 2sc in nxt * Repeat * * around (24) 
Rnd 5 *sc in nxt 3 sts, 2sc in nxt * Repeat * * around(30) 
Rnd6:* sc in nxt 4 sts,2sc in nxt * Repeat  * * around (36) 
Rnd 7: *sc in nxt 5 sts,2sc in nxt * Repeat  * * around(42) 
Rnd 8: to Rnd 17 Sc in each stitch around (42) (10 rounds in total ) 
Rnd 18: *sc in nxt 5 sts, work 2sctogether in nxt * Repeat  * * around (36) 
Rnd 19: *sc in nxt 4 sts, work 2sctogether in nxt * Repeat  * * around (30) 
Rnd 20: *sc in nxt 3 sts, work 2sctogether in nxt * Repeat  * * around (24)


Start Stuffing here 
Change to GREEN yarn. 
Rnd 21: *sc in nxt 2 sts, work 2sctogether in nxt * Repeat  * * around (18)
Rnd 22: *sc in nxt  st, work 2sctogether in nxt * Repeat  * * around (12)
Add in some more stuffing here making sure its quite full
Rnd 33: *2sctog ** Repeat  * * around (6)
Rnd 34:, 8 ch, (STEM) working  into the 2nd ch from the hook, continue to crochet 1 sc in each ch, back down the chain just created)  you will make 7 sc in total.
 (STEM CREATED) work 2sctogether around, and slip to the 7th sc of the stem (bottom of stem to Join) 


Fasten off. Use the green yarn tail to Tighten the small opening.  Weave in the end to hide. 


Making the Seams around the Pumpkin you can pin where you want each seam to go but I usually just go with eye placement. 


1. Cut a long piece of your chosen color for the pumpkin.  Cut it as long as it is comfortable to work with.
2. Thread it into the needle. 
3. Fix the yarn at the top of the orange part. Weave between the rows towards the bottom of the pumpkin however leave 3 rounds. 
4. Pierce your pumpkin from the bottom where you have just ended back to the top (pushing the needle and yarn back to the same position where you started but through the pumpkin this time) 
 And pull hard to tighten. (it will cinched it in) 
5. Repeat step number 4, and fasten if you think it needs it to secure
6. Count a few steps either left or right, and REPEAT STEP 3 - STEP 5 
It is up to you how many times you do this.


 I have found 6 equal seams to be best. 


Fasten off and weave in all ends.
