Happy Saturday Y’all. I got another pumpkin pattern for y’all. Time to keep growing your pumpkin patch.
It’s quick and easy to work up. I literally timed myself while making this one, you will have it worked up from start to finish, in 45 minutes. This is a stash buster or even a scrap yarn project, trying to use up all the yarn — you’ll want to make this one hands down.
Yea I got a question for y’all, when you do stop making pumpkins? Do you only make them from September-October or do you make them all year long? I can honestly tell you, I might not stop. But, I do have a few more I need to finish writing up and designing as well. So, yeah, I just might be making pumpkins the rest of the year, I think that will be ok.

Have you ever wondered what holding 2 strands of yarn can create? This pumpkin uses double strands. It creates a bulky piece, you will fall in love. This pumpkin is constructed with using half double crochet and using a yarn under technique and using single crochet with a yarn under technique for the seam. With your double strands held together, not one will come out the same with your color scheme. You will make a rectangle, taking the 2 ends together to seam them and to form a tube. To bring more into a pumpkin shape you will cinch bottom closed first, turning inside out so your seam will be placed on the inside, stuff it and cinch your top closed. Now, comes the best part, you get shape it to form it into a pumpkin, by wrapping your yarn around 4-6 times pulling them tight to create the shape you want. You will enjoy this pumpkin.
I want to say thank you to Furls Crochet, for sending me their Wander Yarn for this design. They sent me Thatch and Obsidian, to design this pumpkin. This yarn is 100% acrylic based yarn in worsted weight, category 4. I am telling y’all you have to try this yarn and get yourself some. It’s super soft to the touch, making you not wanting to leave your hands. It slides off your hook like butter. It also has a very nice sheen look to it as well. But, the best feature I love about this yarn and for this design, is the SQUISH factor it beholds. One thing I want to say, it does snag with your top of your hook, so really pay attention to that. You can use my Back End Hook Pull Tutorial, to help not snag your yarn. In closing, this yarn is a new love of mine. It’s affordable $5 a skein, buy 5 or more you get a Free Tote with your yarn. Also, it comes in 24 amazing color options. Don’t forget this as well, Furls Crochet, even offers 14 Palette Packs to choose from.
Again, I want to thank Furls Crochet for sending me Streamline Galaxy Solar Flare Swirl I/9 (5.5mm), for this design. The Swirl Hooks are my favorite completely. They are medium lightweight, making you soar through your projects in no time. They don’t cramp my hands, leaving me crocheting for hours. They are also my big Eye Candy, by the blending of colors, creating the Swirl. They came in 11 different color options and in 10 different sizes (G+-P). You will fall in love, like I have over the years. I have using Furls Crochet Swirl Hooks since 2017 and I won’t stop.
Now… let’s get into what you came for… Hall-O-Ween Night Pumpkin

Don’t FO here. Now we will move onto seaming up your pumpkin.
Ch1 and turn, bring the other end up, going into both side, *SC* through each stitch (20), FO and leave a long tail ~5”. Move onto cinching bottom closed.
Cinching Bottom Closed
Thread your yarn onto your needle, weave in and out of the top of each row, finishing back into where you started, unthread your needle and pull on your tail tight to bring it together. Secure by tying a few knots. You don’t need to weave in your ends, just leave on the inside of your pumpkin
Turn pumpkin inside out (seam should be on the inside) and STUFF your pumpkin.
Cinching Top Closed
Use Double Strand cut ~ 5-6” long tail
Thread your yarn onto your needle, weave in and out of the top of each row long the top, finishing back into where you started, unthread your needle and pull on both tails to bring it together, closing the top. Secure by tying a few knots. Weave in your ends. Now, move onto to shaping your pumpkin.
Shaping your Pumpkin
With holding 2 strands together cut about 30-32” long tail
Tread your needle, start by poking your need through the bottom out through the top, warp your yarn over your pumpkin, poke needle back through the bottom out through the top, pull tight (also pull tight on the strand hanging out the bottom), warp yarn again around your pumpkin, poke through the bottom out through the top, at this point you’re going to keep warping evenly around your pumpkin in the same process, for a total of 4-6 warps, having a total of 4-6 bumps on your pumpkin.
To finish, your needle is still out the top, simply poke needle back through the top out through the bottom.
Tie a few knots to secure. Unthread needle.
Weave in your ends. Now, you can poke a stick or cinnamon stick in the top. You can also glue the stick or cinnamon stick to the top of your pumpkin, to keep it in place.
