On Monday I mentioned that I had been playing around with variations on the Tiny Crochet Ball pattern. Hmmm… it’s October. Is it any surprise that I’m making pumpkins? Here’s how you can, too.
Using Tiny Crochet Ball pattern:
Magic ring, R1-2: brown yarn
R3-R11: orange yarn
R12: brown yarn
R1: using brown yarn, chain 5
R2: sc in second bump from hook, sc in next three bumps*
Break yarn and tie a knot. Using a darning needle, attach the stem at the top and bring the ends down through the bottom. Squinch the ball until it’s pumpkin shaped and tie a knot to hold the shape. Bury the ends inside the pumpkin.
*Go into the bumps on the back of the chain, not the stitches on the front of the chain.
