Blessed Pumpkin

I designed this Blessed Pumpkin for the Halloween Crochet Along 2019. Add this cute pumpkin to your Fall/Halloween decor.  You can stitch this little pumpkin up within an hour. It also great for stash busting, which is my thing right. The more yarn I can use from my stash the better off I am and will make the load a wee be lighter when we move again. 😉 I’ll be making more to decorate throughout our house, my office and maybe gift a few to our neighbors.

Fall is my favorite time of year. There’s just something about the crisp air and seeing all the Fall decorations. My face lights up and the excitement in my voice just talking about Fall. I am like a kid in a candy store, yet my store is filled with Fall décor instead of candy. Ooo and getting to eat and drinking all the things pumpkins makes me jump and down. Can you tell I LOVE Fall?? Enjoy!

Blessed Pumpkin Instructions

Chain 16
Row 1 (working in back bump): hdc in 2nd chain from hook and in chain across. Turn (15 hdc)

Rows 2-28: Chain 1 (See Notes), blo sc in same stitch, blo exsc in each hdc across, blo sc in last hdc. Turn (2 blo sc, 13 blo exsc) Fasten off, leaving long enough tail for sewing

Assembly

Using the tail, mattress stitch the edge of the first and last rows together and fasten off. Now you have a cylinder shape.

Next, using another piece of yarn, weave in and out across the top gaping created by each row around the cylinder. Pull ends tight to close the end and tie off.

Now you need to stuff firmly with fiber fill. If you want your pumpkin to be tall and plush add more fiber fill. If you want your pumpkin to be shorter and wider, then just use less fiber fill.

Once you have stuffed your pumpkin to your liking, take another strand of yarn and weave in and out around the top of the pumpkin, closing tight and tying off as you did with the bottom. Be sure to leave a bit of a hole at the top for the stem later.

Once you have tidied up all your ends, you can add the cinnamon sticks. I put three sticks together and tied a rope or raffia around them.

 

Optional

You can pop your cinnamon sticks right into the center hole at the top or you may secure them with hot glue. You can even put kernels inside the pumpkin to help weigh it down.

  1. I am going very late, I was in the hospital. For two weeks and then in a rehabilitation care center for two weeks and then I was at my daughters house. Now I just. Getting home today. I was having crocheting & internet withdrawal pains . My daughter lives an hour away from where I live, to go back there she knows where about where I store everything . Truth be told I was too tired and sore to want anything thing but sleep…
