Just in time for October, I’m publishing the much-requested pattern for my mini pumpkin ornaments! This is the exact pumpkin pattern I use to create my own handmade pumpkin ornaments.
Scroll down for the pattern download links!
With this pattern, you can make little pumpkins in three sizes:
Using DK (light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn and a 3.5mm (US size E-4) crochet hook your pumpkins will be approximately the following sizes:
- Smaller Pumpkin ……. 6.5cm (2½ inches)
- Middle-sized Pumpkin ……. 8cm (3¼ inches)
- Larger Pumpkin ……. 9.5cm (3¾ inches)
But you can choose a different weight yarn and appropriate hook to make larger or smaller pumpkins. I’d love to see someone make pumpkin cushions with super-chunky/super-bulky yarn!
You can go to town with different pumpkiny colours, and mix and match with my other decorative gourds and pumpkin variations – click here to see all posts in my Pumpkin and Gourd Series.
This is a great pattern for someone starting out in crochet, as it only uses the UK: dc / US: sc stitch, and an invisible decrease which is taught in the pattern. The fully-illustrated, easy-to-follow pattern includes detailed notes on choosing your yarn and lots of other helpful tips.
