Harvest Pumpkin Pattern

Back in 2001, I wrote a knitted pumpkin pattern. I never published it and it sat resident on my computer until this year. A friend asked if I had ever knit a pumpkin, because she was wanting to make one and that spurred me on to editing, making more pumpkins and actually redesigning the pumpkin a little bit. Here is the link, where you can purchase the pattern on Etsy.

The picture above shows the darker pumpkin, the original one, on the left hand side. The newer pumpkin on the right hand side. The basic directions are still the same, the difference is in the finishing technique. So, you can still make one like the dark orange one. :)

Here is a close up of the new one.

I have been having so much fun making these little guys, in our 90+ degree weather. They keep reminding me that it is fall and cooler weather will come soon. Some of these pumpkins were sent away for a gift and more have been made. 

Several local friends have been making the pumpkins too! Here are a couple of pictures of Laurie's pumpkins. Laurie is doing some artsy curlicue's with her stem. :)
