DIY mini pumpkin crochet kit to make two ornaments in sustainable, eco-friendly materials.
When finished, the two pumpkins are 7cm (2¾ inches) and 9cm (3½ inches) in diameter.
This beautifully-presented crochet kit contains everything you need to make the pair of pumpkins:
- 15-page fully-illustrated pattern printed on recycled paper
- organic cotton yarn
- 100% natural British sheep’s wool stuffing
- blunt-tipped yarn needle
- gift tag up-cycled from cereal packets, greetings cards, etc
The pattern is worked with a 3.5mm (US size: E-4) crochet hook (or the size you need to make a compact crochet fabric with the given yarn). I offer lovely natural bamboo crochet hooks by Pony if you do not have any or are giving this kit as a gift.
🟩 This pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner. It uses only standard stitches and the main body of the pumpkin is easy to crochet, but the stalk and finishing requires more confidence. If you’ve never crocheted before, you can add an excellent learn-to-crochet book to your order, which will teach you everything you need to know to make the pumpkins.
The kit contents and packaging aims to be as eco-friendly as I can make it:
- box – 70% recycled, reusable and recyclable.
- ball bands, box labels – 100% recycled paper, recyclable.
- pattern – 100% recycled paper, recyclable.
- tissue – 100% recycled, recyclable.
- business cards, tags, etc – handmade from greeting cards, cereal packets, etc, recyclable.
The carded wool stuffing is a natural product. It is scoured and clean, but may still include the odd bit of straw or leaf.
