Pumpkin Trio Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Oct 19, 2019



Fall is quickly approaching and I couldn’t be more excited.

I love feeling the crisp air in the morning, watching the trees changing colors, cozying up near a fire pit at night...there are so many things to love about Fall!


But nothing says Fall as seeing pumpkins popping up everywhere!

Either real or made of wood, plastic, fabric or yarn, pumpkins are the perfect decor for this time of the year.


I couldn’t help but designing my own crochet pumpkins to share with you all!

Three adorable pumpkins made with a medium weight yarn in three beautiful fall colors: rust, mustard and off white.


Each pumpkin has a different design...you'll find a big ribbed pumpkin, a butternut squash and a little bumped white pumpkin. What's your favorite?


***You can purchase an AD-FREE PDF of these patterns with many step-by-step pictures on Etsy HERE.


Here are the FREE patterns! Enjoy!

BIG RIBBED PUMPKIN



PUMPKIN (rust yarn; work in row, turn at the end of each row)

1) 23 ch, 1 dc in the 3rd ch from the hook, 20 (21); ch 1

2) working in BLO, 21 sc (21); ch 2

3) working in BLO, 21 dc (21); ch 1

4) working in BLO, 21 sc (21); ch 2

5-28) repeat rows #3-4 (21); F/O and leave a very long tail of yarn.




You can decide which face of the crochet panel you want to display, then fold the piece in half (facing the exterior side) and start sewing the first row to the last one. Once you have joined the two sides together, use the extra tail of yarn to close the bottom of the pumpkin. Insert the needle up in one stitch and then down in the next one, all the way around. Pull the yarn tight to close the hole. Stuff the pumpkin and repeat the same process to close the upper side. F/O, cut and hide the yarn.


STEM (brown yarn)

1) 8 sc in a mr (8); do not ch 1

2) 8 sl st (8); ch 1 and turn

3-4) 8 sc (8)

5) *2 sc, 1 sc dec*, repeat ** twice (6); F/O and leave a long tail of yarn to attach the stem to the top of the pumpkin. Stuff the stem before attaching it.



BUTTERNUT SQUASH


I added few puff stitches randomly to give some texture to the pumpkin.

To do so just work a puff stitch instead of a single crochet, wherever you’d like!

Puff Stitch: instead of working 5 entire stitches, you draw up a loop and yarn over 5 times through the base stitch, and keep all the loops on the hook. Make a yarn over and draw up through all the loops on the hook to complete the puff stitch.



PUMPKIN (mustard yarn)

1) 8 sc in a mr (8)

2) sc inc around (16)

3) *1 sc, 1 sc inc*, repeat ** around (24)

4) *2 sc, 1 sc inc*, repeat ** around (32)

5) *3 sc, 1 sc inc*, repeat ** around (40)

6-13) sc even (40)

14) *3 sc, 1 sc dec*, repeat ** around (32)

15) sc even (32); start stuffing the pumpkin

16) *2 sc, 1 sc dec*, repeat ** around (24)

17-19) sc even (24)

20) *2 sc, 1 sc inc*, repeat ** around (32)

21-22) sc even (32)

23) *2 sc, 1 sc dec*, repeat ** around (24)

24) *1 sc, 1 sc dec*, repeat ** around (16); finish stuffing

25) dec around (8); F/O, close the hole and hide the yarn


STEM (brown yarn)

1) 6 sc in a mr (6); do not ch 1

2) 6 sl st (6); turn

3) 6 sc (6)

4) sc even (6); F/O and leave a long tail of yarn to attach the stem to the top of the pumpkin.

Stuff the stem before attaching it.



SMALL BUMPED PUMPKIN


PUMPKIN (off white yarn)

1) 8 sc in a mr (8)

2) sc inc around (16)

16) *2 sc, 1 sc dec*, repeat ** around (24)

17) *1 sc, 1 sc dec*, repeat ** around (16); stuff the pumpkin

18) dec around (8)

F/O and leave a very long tail of yarn to create the bumps on the pumpkin.

Insert the needle up through the center and pull it out on the other side, wrap it around the pumpkin back to the bottom, stick the needle back up through the center and pull it tight so that it squeezes the pumpkin. Continue wrapping it around so that you end up with 6 bumps.


STEM (brown yarn)

1) 6 sc in a mr (6); do not ch 1

2) 6 sl st (6); turn

3) 6 sc (6); F/O and leave a long tail of yarn to attach the stem to the top of the pumpkin.
