As soon as I saw them, I fell in love with these Farmhouse Crochet Pumpkins!! The wonderful patterns are available free here on Megmade with Love – or you can get a pdf file in her Etsy shop for just $2! So worth it to have a nice printout to work from…
The pumpkins stitch up really quickly and are so fun to make! The plaid one takes a bit longer because of the color changes and it is bigger – but you can still whip it up in an evening.
For the yellow pumpkin, I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn in Butterscotch. I didn’t read the pattern close enough to see that it called for crocheting in the back loop only on this one so I didn’t make it that way…and I didn’t want to start all over when I realized it.😳 But I really like the way it turned out!
For the orange ribbed pumpkin, I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Carrot. This one is stitched using 2 strands of yarn together – I just used one skein, pulling from the center and the outside of the skein at the same time.
The stems are pieces of a stick cut to about 2-inches or so and hot glued to the pumpkins. I also hot glued the leaf to the plaid pumpkin. Then I tied some raffia and twine around the stems.
They look so cute grouped together and add such a warm touch to your Fall decor!
