Following on from last week’s publication of my three Pumpkin Crochet Pattern (which has been more popular than I dreamed!) I am now publishing one of my other fun decorative gourd patterns – the Warty Gourd.
Scroll down for the pattern download links.
This is one of the general type of decorative gourds called bottle gourds because of their shape, but this warty gourd variety features regular nubbly ridges that make for an interesting crochet project:
Using DK (light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn and a 3.5mm (US size E-4) crochet hook this gourd is approximately 10cm long (not counting the stalk).
But you can choose a different weight yarn and appropriate hook to make larger or smaller gourds.
As always the fully-illustrated, easy-to-follow pattern includes detailed notes on choosing your yarn and lots of other helpful tips, and is available in both UK and US terminology.
Don’t forget you can order all my crochet patterns printed and gift-boxed, and these make lovely, easy-to-post gifts for crafty friends.

And of course you can still order my pumpkins and gourds readymade if you prefer.
