Teddy Bear Pumpkin Knitting Pattern

Knit your very own oversized, huggable teddy bear pumpkin. When you’re done knitting it, just try not to squeeze it… I dare you! ;)

Pottery Barn is my inspiration…
I love all things cozy and they have some of the coziest home collections. I was so excited to see their fall collection! A couple of weeks ago I went to their website and the first thing I saw at the top of the page was a knitted pumpkin. It’s like they designed their website just for me. They knew I was coming. {lol!}


I was browsing through the different pumpkins they have and I noticed some user submitted photos… that’s when I realized how BIG the pumpkins are. It was love at first site, but once I saw the size… I had to have one of my very own.


Off to my stash I went… and I went a little pumpkin crazy! Thankfully I had a bunch of left-over yarn from some blanket scarves/wraps that I made last year. I’d been playing with lots of different yarns and textures.


Shop your stash and basket full of left-over yarn! This project was so much fun, I hope you enjoy knitting & creating your very own pumpkins!
