PUMPKIN PATCH PATTERN
SKILL LEVEL: Easy
One skein/ball Super bulky yarn (weight 6), such as:
1 cinnamon stick
Stuffing (shredded paper, rafia, scrap yarn, poly fill)
GAUGE: 4x4”/10x10cm = 9 stitches x 16 rows in stockinette
SIZE: Finished pumpkins will measure 3"x4"/2"x2.5"
Using long-tail cast on method, cast on 18 stitches for large pumpkins or 12 stitches for small pumpkins using US15/10mm needles, and join in the round. Be careful not to twist stitches.
Row 1-12: *K2, P1. Repeat from * around for the whole row for 12 rows for large pumpkins or 8 rows for small pumpkins.
Cast off your stitches.
Cut yarn, leave an 8”/20cm tail. Using your needle, thread the yarn needle through each of the remaining stitches and pull tightly to close the top of the pumpkin.
Grab a handful of stuffing and fill the pumpkin until it is full but not overly stretched out. Press the needle through the hole at the top of the pumpkin down through the center of the stuffing. Place your cinnamon stick stem through the hole at the top of the pumpkin (this step requires a bit of wiggling.)
Using the tapestry needle pick up every other stitch around the bottom of the pumpkin and pull gently to close. Weave in the end around the base of the pumpkin and trim excess yarn.
