To prevent hand pain, I crochet with Furls Crochet Hooks. I can spend hours crocheting with these hooks. For the Hello Harvest Crochet Pumpkin Pillow, I used the Furls Streamline Aries Hook. You can purchase them HERE with code MJS15 for 15% off.
Crochet Pumpkin Pillow Yarn
I used Charisma Bulky weight yarn from Michaels to crochet the Hello Harvest Crochet Pumpkin Pillow. This is a heavy bulky similar to a super bulky #6. 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 light, bulky weight yarn.
