Mini Crochet Pumpkin Embellishments Free Pattern

Make these quick and easy pumpkins to accessorize your fall decor! The pattern below works up 3 sizes of mini pumpkin goodies!




I made these to make this wreath for my new house!





Skill Level: Easy


Abbreviations:

CH – chain

SC – single crochet


Size:

2in (3in, 4in)


Materials:

· 1 skein for pumpkin orange (or any pumpkin color you like). I like Red Heart Super Saver Yarn for projects like these because they’re a great price, durable and come in LOADS of colors. I used color Pumpkin, Carrot and Coral Corail.

· 1 skein of light brown for the stem (I used scraps that I had left over from other projects.)

· Poly Fill to plump them up!

· Size 5.5MM crochet hook




Pattern:

You will be working in the round, starting with a magic circle in the pumpkin colour of your choice. The sizing is written from Small (Medium, Large).

Stuff with poly fill, bind off leaving a long tail.


Create pumpkin creases. Begin shaping pumpkin grooves by pushing the needle up through the middle and around the sides. You will do this 5 times. Pull on the yarn so that it creates a tight synch along the sides.


Stumps:


With brown, create a magic circle.

Row 1: 4 sc in magic circle

Row 2-4: sc around turning the work right side facing.

Bind off and leave a long tail to attach to the centre of the pumpkin.


Enjoy!
