It’s been a while! It’s been a busy few months lately, and what with Covid lockdowns I have been focused on other things, but I am back, and I have a few new patterns to share! The first one is my new nobbly pumpkin pattern; I came up with it one evening, trying to think of ways to use my Scheepjes Stonewashed-Riverwashed Pack.
This pattern uses two of these little 10g yarn skeins for the pumpkin body, and then a final skein for the pumpkin top. This pattern is remarkably quick to whip up, and the texture is just fantastic! Lastly, this pattern, unlike other pumpkin patterns, doesn’t require you to work around the pumpkin with a yarn strand to create the segmented look; the texture does that on its own!
So without further ado, let’s get crocheting!
All crochet patterns and terms I use are in UK, but if you want them in US then check out this handy stitch converter.
- 3 10g skeins of Scheepjes Stonewashed (I used Lemon Quartz, Brown Agate and Canada Jade for the green pumpkin)
- 3.5mm hook
- Embroidery or Darning needle ( for weaving in ends )
- Magic ring
- Slip stitch (sl st)
- cluster stitching – (3 tc cl) – * yo, insert hook into stitch, yo and pull through loop, yo and pull through 2 loop *. Repeat until you have 4 loops on your hook. Yo and pull through all loops on the hook.
- Half treble crochet (htc)
- Double crochet (dc)
- Foundation Double crochet (fdc)
There is no set gauge; different yarn and hook sizes will result in different pumpkin sizes!
All of this pattern is worked into the back loops of the stitches; this creates the rib effect for the pumpkin.
Row 0: Fdc 10.
Row 1: Ch 2. 3 tc cl in each stitch along. (10 stitches total)
Row 2: Ch 2. Htc in each stitch across. (10 stitches total)
Repeat rows 1-2 six more times, and row 1 one final time.
You should now have a finished pumpkin rectangle, ready to be sewn up! To sew up, I did a slip stitch all the way up the width of the pumpkin.
I then did a drawstring stitch on both the top and the bottom of the pumpkin. Once the pumpkin was fully sewn together, I made the pumpkin stalk /topper (what else can I even call it! :D)
To make the topper:
Row 0: Magic ring, dc 4.
Row 1: Working into the back loops, dc in each stitch.
Row 2: Dc in each stitch.
Repeat row 2 twice more.
Now you should have a pumpkin stalk/ topper! All you need to do is sew it on the top of the pumpkin and you’re done!
Feel free to experiment with this pattern, to make bigger pumpkins use thicker yarn. The taller pumpkin I made was made using rows of 15 stitches 🙂
