How to Crochet the Country Harvest Crochet Pumpkins

The crochet pumpkin is worked flat in rows from the side across. The unique crochet ribbing is crocheted by working a row of double crochet in the back loop only in combination with a row of linked slip stitches. Finish with a double crochet row and slip stitch the ends together. The bottom is seamed closed and stuffed with polyester fiberfill, and the top is completed with an opening for a cinnamon stick. Indents on the sides are made by weaving the yarn needle down through double crochet rows. Step-by-step video tutorial included for XS size on YouTube.

Crochet Hook

The Country Harvest Crochet Pumpkins pattern requires a

US H/8 (5mm) or the size needed to obtain gauge

To prevent hand pain, I crochet with Furls Crochet Hooks. I can spend hours crocheting with these hooks. For the Country Harvest Crochet Pumpkins, I used the Furls Streamline Cookie Hook. You can purchase them HERE with code MJS15 for 15% off.

Crochet Pumpkin Yarn

I used Wander Worsted weight yarn from Furls Crochet to crochet the Country Harvest Crochet Pumpkins. This is a heavy worsted similar to a bulky #5. I will list some substitutes that I think would be suitable alternatives. Otherwise, your pumpkins may come out smaller than those shown if you are using a lighter weight worsted.

Indents

Country Harvest Crochet Pumpkins free crochet pattern

With the long yarn tail from the top closure, create indents in every 2nd (XS & S) or 3rd (M-XXL) dc row around the pumpkin. Weave the yarn needle down through the dc stitches (see pic), push the yarn needle through the bottom closure, coming up through the top closure. Skip one or two double crochet rows and repeat this step around. Some pumpkins may not end evenly, so one section of the pumpkin can have a larger space between indents.

Cinnamon Sticks

Use a glue gun to secure cinnamon sticks in the hole of the top closure. Tie a piece of twine or plaid ribbon in a bow around the cinnamon stick to finish. Don’t use glue if you want to remove the stick for stacking sizes M-XXL.

Stacking

Stacking sizing options as shown or mix and match to create your own combinations.

Option #1:

Bottom XXL, Middle L, Top S

Option #2:

Bottom XL, Middle M, Top XXS

Option #3:

Bottom L, Top S

Pumpkin stacks can be secured together by weaving yarn up through each pumpkin. Start at the bottom and weave back down from the top. Knot ends and trim.
