It’s Pumpkin Time!!
Like I said last post, fall is by far the best time of the year. One of the things I love about fall is all the adorable decor! And, just in time for fall, we’ve got these adorable pumpkins!

The pumpkin pattern for this week is quite easy to follow. Basically, all you need to do it make a rectangle approximately twice as long as it is wide, then do a little seaming and stuffing and BANG!! adorable pumpkins. They’re so easy and fun, you can whip up an entire house full of decorations in a couple of hours.

Pattern is written up for 3 different sizes; small(medium, large) so you can make oodles of them to put in many different places!

I used Caron One Pound to make these little guys, but they can be made in any medium weight 4 worsted/aran yarn or if you want larger chunkier versions, go ahead and crochet them up in that bulky chunky monkey yarn you’ve been saving. 

Some substitute yarns for Caron One Pound would be Lion Brand Heartland, Wool-Ease or Vanna’s Choice, and Red Heart With Love or Soft. 

Happy Crocheting!

I want to say a very big THANK YOU! to my testers for this pattern @crochetkat27, @theyarningbemis, @mettekindsbo, @raquelantoinette, @lizzybeecrafts, and @shigeru_hiko, you guys are absolutely awesome!

I love to see what you create!

FREE PATTERN - Even Berry Pumpkins3 - Ravin Sekai Designs pin

Base:

Ch 16 (18, 20)

Row 1: sc into 3rd ch from hook (counts as 2 sc), 13(15,17)sc into each ch to end, turn. 15(17,19)st about 5.2(5.9, 6.5) inches

Row 2: ch1 (counts as first sc), skip first st, * berry st into next st, sc into next sc* rep * * with last sc into starting ch1 below, turn. 15(17,19)st (it is a bit hard to see this sc, so it might be good to place a sm in it so you can see it)

Row 3: ch1 (count as first sc), skip first st, sc to end, turn. 15(17,19)st

Row 4: ch1 (count as first sc), skip first st *berry st into next sc, sc into next sc* rep* * to end, turn. 15(17,19)st

Row 5 - Row 24(28, 32): Rep Row 3 - Row 4 10(12,14) more times, 12(14,16) times total. Approx: 9(10.5, 12) inches

Construction and Shaping:

1.Place shorter ends together with berry stitch facing inwards, ch1, sl st up ends together and flip seam to the inside. (Berry st facing out)

2. With a darning needle, weave tail through top every 2 rows. Pull hole closed and sew tight.

3. Weave yarn up through bottom of pumpkin, then stuff pumpkin (I use yarn ends from other projects to stuff when I make things for myself, you can use fiberfill too!)

4. Pulling yarn tight, weave yarn through every two rows along top of pumpkins to close top, leave a hole big enough for your pumpkin stem.

5. To make a more pumpkin like shape, wrap the yarn down between the rows of berry sts, then through the bottom, back up through the top hole, and pull yarn tightly.  Rep 4 - 5 times evenly around the pumpkin. Each pumpkin bump doesn’t need to be completely even (real pumpkins aren’t, am I right?). I did 4 times for my large size pumpkin and 5 for both medium and small.

Push your stem (stick, cinnamon stick, etc) through the hole and add any decorations you might want

Weave in any ends you might have, and you’re done!

I love to see what you create!
