The pumpkin season officially started! Say hello to cool weather, gorgeous fall colors and pumpkin spice everything. And if you didn’t start on your own pumpkin patch yet or need to make some more (because who doesn’t) I’ve got a simple t-shirt yarn crochet pumpkin pattern for you, better yet in 2 sizes. I call it pumpkin in 30 minutes, because that’s how long it takes to make a large size pumpkin, which makes it a great selling item at markets. In fact I used to whip these pumpkins right at the markets.

The pattern is for 2 sizes, the small pumpkin measures 17” in diameter x 3” H without a stem and large pumpkin measures 24.5” in diameter x 4” H without a stem. You can decorate your pumpkin with anything you have handy be it ribbon, raffia or jute cord. I found great wood stick in my yard and used it as a stem but cinnamon stick would work as well.
