Are you guys as excited about Fall as I am!? I know, technically it's still August but i'm over that. I'm ready for spiced cider and pretty leaves and flannel everything!
In the spirit of September and all things orange and festive, I've been making cute, little Pumpkins! And you can too!
These guys are a quick way to make your home festive without spending a ton of money. I was able to whip these Punkin's up in the time it took me to watch Batman and Robin.
This knitted Pumpkin pattern is by Katrina McNerney and is a super quick knit. It's knitted in the round with DPNs, then gathered on the top and bottom and has a simple i-chord stem. Mine turned out about 5" wide by 3" tall and I used Lily Sugar N'Cream yarn and size 7 (4.5mm) needles.
This little crocheted Punkin' pattern is by June Gilbank and is just freaking adorable. This one measures about 4"x2". I used Lily Sugar N'Cream and a size E US (3.5mm) hook.
All you need to make these is yarn, stuffing, a seaming needle and the crochet/knitting needles of your choice.
I love simple, festive projects. And no worries about your Pumpkins getting old and gross on you, these guys will last you through many a Holiday celebration. Halloween? Covered. Thanksgiving? Under control.
Give these little guys a try! I think I might whip some more up in white or light green before the Season is over.
Thanks for stopping by!
