Knitting up fall pumpkin decorations is a fun way to use up some left-over yarn! I knit up a few of these because every yarn is unique and gives the pumpkin a slightly different style. Which one’s your favorite?

Details:

Gauge: This varies depending on yarn and size, you don’t want the sts too loose, so the stuffing doesn’t show.

 

Notes:

Knit bottom up.

Knit wrong-side-out.

You can use any weight of yarn, the thinner the yarn, the smaller the pumpkin.
