I’ve spotted these adorable knitting pumpkins all over the internet and have had a few requests for a pattern.
They are surprisingly easy – great for beginners and even children to try!
Knitted pumpkin pattern
9" circular needle
Chunky weight orange wool (or colour of choice)
Cast 78sts onto a set of 9” circular needles (the length is important as you need it to be the right length to knit your stitches in a circle without stretching them!)
K12, P1 and repeat for the round
Repeat this until your work measures around 8”
Cut the working wool leaving a very generous amount (30”+)
Thread a wool needle with this end and pull through all the stitches on the needle and close tightly
Weave the cast on end loosely around the bottom edge and then pull this closed
Using the leftover wool from the top, pull tightly and to the bottom along each groove created by your P stitch to help shape your pumpkin (watch the video below as a reference)
Find a stick you like to complete the look (I used cinnamon). You could also knit a small I-Cord to make a little stem.
