Halloween Pumpkin Knitting Pattern


There is no denying it, Autumn is most definitely here and we are very fast approaching Halloween, so I thought I'd re-share a post from last year about these cure little pumpkin ornaments that I created.

I love Halloween! Even though my own kids are grown up, I still get in a good store of treats, put out a lit pumpkin to encourage Trick or Treaters and always give the best goodies to those who have gone the extra mile when putting together their costume.
My kids and I used to have great fun making Halloween related art and crafts projects, and I look forward to when (maybe!) I can do the same with grandkids.
All these Halloween thoughts reminded me that this time last year I designed a little knitted pumpkin pattern and posted it on the blog. I then realised that no-one is going to find it way back in the archives, so I posted it as a free pattern on Ravelry and Craftsy.
This little pumpkin is just 3" diameter if knitted in double knit yarn (a bit bigger if knit in aran or worsted) and would be great addition to a costume. You could attach one to the brim of a witches hat, temporarily sew them to the back of some mittens or dress up a Trick or Treat bag with them
.
I think mine will be used as table decorations this year


They only take an evening to make and the free pattern is now also in the Knitting Patterns section on this blog or you can download it HERE
Happy Halloween everyone!

  1. I love fall but HATE Halloween.....not sure what it is about it. Love gourds, pumpkins and all of the fall things, including the weather!

  2. Gorgeous, Julie! If only I could knit properly - all the pumpkins in Morrisons were mouldy! Apparently the harvest isn't good this year, so R will have to go without. Oh, and finally did some quilting on my Bee quilt tonight :-)
