Farm Fresh Pumpkin Crochet Pattern
It’s almost Fall so you know what that means, pumpkin season is near! I know there are so many crochet pumpkin patterns already out there, but can you really have too many pumpkins?! I don’t think so! So, for the month of September I will be releasing 4 new pumpkin patterns here on my blog! Every Friday this month I’ll release a new and unique pumpkin pattern, starting with the Farm Fresh Pumpkin!
The Farm Fresh Pumpkin features a beautiful, rigid texture, taking it up a notch from just your standard single crochet pumpkin (if you like that sort of thing I have pattern for that HERE!)
The best part about this pattern is that you can use almost any yarn in your stash! I used three different types of Lion Bran Yarn to create three different sized pumpkins! For the small I used Wool-Ease in the color Natural Heather. Wool-Ease comes in a variety of colors and each skein can make 3 small sized pumpkins with yarn to spare! The medium sized pumpkin uses Color Made Easy. I used the color Kombucha which is seriously the most perfect Fall color! And last, for the large I used Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in the color Fisherman. I think the large one might be my favorite because of how chunky and squishy this pumpkin is! You can find all these yarns on Lion Brand’s website or check out the supply links below to find them on Amazon!
If you only want to use one type of yarn but make multiple sizes then don’t worry! This pattern is so easy to adjust so you can make your pumpkins whatever size you want! Repeat Row 2 as many times as you want to reach your desired width and adjust your chain length for the height! Just be sure to always end on a even numbered row and make your starting chain an even number.
If you’re ready to start, grab whatever yarn you have available and check out the supply list down below! Or follow along with the video tutorial on YouTube!
Gauge is not important but you can follow along with the gauge pattern in the chart if you want your pumpkins to be the exact size mine are. Start with a chain one more than the stitch stated in the chart below. Starting in the 2nd CH from the hook, work the Even Moss Stitch across. Repeat the Even Moss Stitch until the row stated below is reached. Adjust your hook size up or down if need be.

This pattern uses the Even Moss Stitch. The Even Moss Stitch is created by working a SL ST into the first ST then a HDC in the next. You will repeat those stitches across, ending with a SL ST. For each row the pattern will be repeated, you will always work a SL ST in the SL ST from the previous row and a HDC in the HDC from the previous row. This will create a beautifully textured piece.
● The chain at the beginning of each row/round does not count as a stitch.
● Repeat stitches between the ** until the end of the row/round or until otherwise stated.
Row 1: SL ST in 2nd CH from hook, *HDC, SL ST* across (15)
Row 2: CH 1 & turn. SL ST in 1st ST, *HDC, SL ST* across (15)
Row 3-42: Repeat Row 2
Fold rectangle in half, bringing the 2 short sides together. SL ST the ends together, working 15 SL ST’s across. Do not tie off. Flip inside out so that the seam is on the inside.
CH 1, turn work 90 degrees and HDC2TOG around. SL ST to the 1st HDC2TOG. Tie off yarn leaving a 24” long tail. Using a yarn needle, weave tail end through the HDC2TOG STs. Pull tight to cinch bottom closed. Pull tail end through the hole at the bottom and stuff pumpkin with Fiber Fill, working around the tail end and keeping it centered. Weave tail end around the top of the pumpkin and cinch tight to close. Pull tail end through the top center hole, down to the bottom center hole. Keeping yarn tight, tie off with a few knots to the bottom of the pumpkin. Weave in end.
Finish your pumpkin off with a stem. There are endless possibilities for pumpkin stems: twigs and sticks from fallen branches in your yard, cinnamon sticks from your local market, or satin lace from the craft store! Simply stick stem through the center hole and voila! You can even use a dab of hot glue or fabric glue to keep the stem extra secure.
For extra pizazz add twine or fake leaves and berries!
And you’re all done!
