This 3D Pumpkin Knitting Pattern-Straight Needles shows  you how to make adorably decorative 3D pumpkins.

And they are the ultimate stash busters! You need so little yarn for them. They can be made in any Fall color, and with almost any kind of yarn, and look great!

Try some interesting combo’s like greys with moss greens, or burnt orange, browns and even purples. Golden yellow or off white are suitable for pumpkin bodies too. You can get real artistic with these!

While this adorable little pumpkin makes a fun  Fall or festive Halloween decoration, feel free to cherish it year round by filling up the hollow and use it as a pincushion.


Yarn Used 

For this pattern, for the body of the pumpkin, we used a worsted weight Rowan wool yarn in olive. The wool gives it body, and it’s of very nice quality.  For the stem we used Noro silk garden lite solo, which is a DK / 8 ply yarn.

However, the pumpkin may be knit in any weight yarn.  By using high quality yarn, you make your pumpkin into a keepsake.   We recommend using up some yarn remnants in your stash, as you’ll need very little of it.
