Feisty Pumpkins

IMG_7148

These pumpkins are so cute, and can be customized with any face expressions you want to make them extra fun. Made with worsted weight yarn, the small pumpkins measure approximately 4 inches tall, and the large ones measure approximately 5 inches tall.

If you want a pattern that you can save on your computer and easily print, this pattern is available in my Ravelry shop. I love printing patterns and saving them in a binder to keep track of the ones I’ve done and the ones I still plan to do.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Materials needed:

Any worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver.

G (4mm) crochet hook

Poly-fil

Yarn needle

15mm safety eyes
