Instructions

All pumpkins are made with hook 6 and with Infinity Hearts Ribbon.

Colours: 27 Yellow and 28 Mustard Yellow or 11 Pistache Green and 14 Bottle Green.

The pumpkins are crocheted in two colours, alternating between light and dark. Always start with the light colour and make the colour change in the last turning chain. That way the rows alternate between light and dark. I cut the tails off as I go - but I leave a long tail on the last row, as it will be used for weaving the sides together.

On the row with double crochets, you make 2 turning chains, where you only make 1 with the trebles.

   

Small pumpkin

  • Make 21 ch with the lighter colour, change over to the dark colour on ch 22 (2 turning chains)
  • Make 20 treble in the back loop, make the colour change on the turning chain - 1 ch
  • Make 20 double crochets in back loop, change colour on 2nd turning chain
  • Repeat until you have made 13 rows of each colour

Medium pumpkin

  • Make 36 ch with the lighter colour, change over to the dark colour on ch 37 (2 turning chains)
  • Make 35 treble in back loop, make the colour change on the turning chain - 1 ch
  • Make 35 double crochets in back loop, change colour on 2nd turning chain
  • Repeat until you have made 20 rows of each colour.

Large pumpkin

  • Make 51 ch with the lighter colour, change over to the dark colour on ch 52 (2 turning chains)
  • Make 50 treble in the back loop, make the colour change on the turning chain - 1 ch
  • Make 50 double crochets in back loop, change colour on 2nd turning chain
  • Repeat until you have made 27 rows of each colour. 

When the pumpkin ‘pieces’ are finished, you weave all ends together – you do that simply by using a reef knot.

   

Then, you weave all the sides together. It is important to do this while makings sure it resembles the rest of the pumpkin's shape. 

Begin on the front loop on the chain stitch row and over to the back loop in the last row.

Continue like this all the way down and your weave will have the same structure as the rest.

Now you join the ends to get the round shape. Here, you use double Ribbon so it's slightly sturdier when you tighten it, weave the double Ribbon yarn all the way around, tighten and bind all ends together firmly.

Make sure to stuff the pumpkin generously with wadding in order for it to get a nice and solid shape.
