A knit pumpkin design with a branch stem. No felting required!
Add a little whimsy to your autumn decor with pumpkins covered in colors woven
into cross-barred pattern!
The instructions create a plaid pumpkin measuring about 5-1/2 inches wide by about 5-inches high
(including the stem).
The pumpkin is knit as one continuous piece. No sewing of seams is required.
Knitting begins at the pumpkin's base and ends with a bind off edge at the top, creating an opening for stuffing the pumpkin
with fiberfill. Once stuffed, stripes are embroidered into the purl ditches. The stem is a cut branch inserted into the pumpkin's
opening. A curly wire vine is then attached.
