Teeny Tiny Crochet Pumpkin Pattern


Fall is just around the corner and it's my favorite season! I am already working on some fall crafts to decorate my home and one of the first things I did was make little crochet pumpkins. This is a simple little pattern that leaves you with a tiny little ridged pumpkins.

Teeny Tiny Crochet Pumpkin Pattern

Materials:
-Vanna's Choice Yarn
-Size G (4.0mm) Crochet Hook
-Tapestry Needle
-Poly-fil

Abbreviations:
SC= Single Crochet
HDC= Half Double Crochet




Working in back loops only...
Chain 11,
Row 1: SC in second chain from hook, SC in next, HDC in next 6, SC in last two, chain 1, turn
Row 2: SC across (10 SC)
Row 3-17:  Repeat rows 1-2. Leave long tail.

Stitch together row 17 to beginning row.




Just like you would begin to make a single crochet decrease, stitch together one end of the pumpkin. Keep looping the tapestry need under two stitches at a time until it closes. Stuff with poly-fil and do the same to the other side. Fasten off and weave in ends.



Pumpkin Stem:
Magic ring, 4 SC in magic ring,
2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around (6 sc)
Continue to SC around until stem is to the desired length

I added on a leaf and coil as well. I like THIS free leaf pattern.

Pumpkin Coil:
Chain 10 (or more/less for desired length)
2 SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain.
