Easy Crochet Pumpkins {free pattern}

This little pumpkin is so easy and fast to make, you’ll have time leftover to make some to decorate your whole house! Enjoy the free crochet pattern below.

Crochet Pumpkin Free Pattern

Project “decorate the mantel” continues with these cute little pumpkins! I designed this pattern to be super easy to make and to work up quickly, and it worked! The color combinations are endless and if I crochet any more, I will make the color bands less tall – only 2 0r 3 rows instead of 4 or 5. I then added a little hat for the stem and curly q’s to finish it off. I made them to perfectly match my crochet fall bunting and crochet lady owl (both are free patterns) so it all coordinates on the mantel. I used half double crochet to crochet the body, but I am able to see the fiberfill through it. It doesn’t seem to bother anyone else, but if that might bother you, I suggest either using a smaller hook (G) or use single crochet. It won’t work up nearly as quickly, but it will look nicer, so it’s up to you! Here’s the pattern!

Easy Crochet Pumpkins Pattern

Written and designed by Sara of My Merry Messy Life – copyright 2012

Abbreviations

  • SC = single crochet

  • HDC = half double crochet
  • SL ST = slip stitch
  • CH = chain

Crochet Pumpkin Pattern - Step 1

The Body

**If your circle starts to ripple, then either decrease on the next round or do a non-increasing round of just 1 HDC in each space. That should help to flatten it back out. But, it is not a big concern if it is not flat since it will be pulled up at the end. 

Here are my support tutorials to go with this pattern, if you need some extra help:

The non-increasing rows are in color.

  • CH 3, join with a SL ST to form a circle
  • Round 1: CH 2 (counts as first HDC), 11 HDC in circle, SL ST to top of CH 1 (12 HDC total)
  • Round 2: CH 2, work 1 HDC in the same space, then work 2 HDC in each SP, SL ST to top of CH 1 (24 HDC total)
  • Round 3: CH 2, work 2 HDC in the next space, *1 HDC in the next, 2 HDC in the next space* repeat from * all the way around, SL ST to the top of CH 1 (36 HDC total)
  • Round 4: CH 2, work 1 HDC in the next space, 2 HDC in the next space, *1 HDC in each of the next 2 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space* repeat from * all the way around, SL ST in the CH 1 (48 HDC total)
  • Round 5: CH 2, work 1 HDC in the next space, then work 1 HDC in each space around (48 total)
  • Round 6: CH 2, work 1 HDC each of the next 2 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space, *1 HDC in each of the next 3 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space* repeat from * all the way around, SL ST in the CH 1 (60 HDC total)
  • Round 7: CH 2, work 1 HDC in the next space, then work 1 HDC in each space around (60 total)
  • Round 8: CH 2, work 1 HDC each of the next 3 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space, *1 HDC in each of the next 4 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space* repeat from * all the way around, SL ST in the CH 1 (72 HDC total)
  • Round 9: CH 2, work 1 HDC in the next space, then work 1 HDC in each space around (72 total)
  • Round 10: CH 2, work 1 HDC in each of the next 4 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space, *1 HDC in each of the next 5 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space* repeat from * all the way around, SL ST in the CH 1 (84 HDC total)
  • Round 11: CH 2, work 1 HDC in the next space, 1 HDC in each space around (84 total)
  • Round 12: CH 2, work 1 HDC in each of the next 5 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space, *1 HDC in each of the next 6 spaces, 2 HDC in the next space* repeat from * all the way around, SL ST in the CH 1 (96 HDC total)
  • Round 13: CH 2, work 1 HDC in the next space, 1 HDC in each space around (96 total)

Step 2: Leave a long tail at the end and sew it with the tapestry needle around the edges.

Step 3: Take both of the long tails and pull them until the circle pulls up, but leave enough space to stuff it.

Step 4: Stuff the pumpkin with fiberfill or anything you like, really. You could even add potpourri, wool roving, or plastic bags to make a nice baby toy!

Step 5: Pull both the tails tight, until the pumpkin is almost all the way closed. Leave about enough space for two fingers to be able to sew the stem onto it.

Step 6: Crochet the stem and curly-q and sew them onto the top. Patterns below the picture.

Crochet Pumpkin Pattern Step 6

Stem Pattern

Hook size: F

This is just a very tiny hat pattern, so if you know how to work one, you won’t need this pattern!

  • CH 2, SL ST to form a ring.
  • Round 1: 6 SC in the ring (I didn’t join because I didn’t feel like it, but you can if you’d like to!)
  • Round 2: 2 SC in each space all the way around (12 SC total)
  • Rounds 3-6: 1 SC in each space around (12 SC total)

Tie off and sew onto the top of the pumpkin.

Curly-Q Pattern

Make a chain of however long you’d like your curly-q – I did 12.

Then, work a DC in each chain, it will naturally start to curl as you go along. Super easy, isn’t it? Then tie of and sew on.

DONE! Merry Crocheting!

These pumpkins are part of my fall crochet mantel decorating series, where you can also find free patterns for a granny triangle bunting, and an owl!
