A knit pumpkin design with two decorative stems. No felting required!
Create a pumpkin patch with the look of a cable knit sweater! The warm cozy
texture adds whimsy to any autumn display.
The finished pumpkin measures about 5-inches wide by about 3-inches high (without
the stem). The pumpkin has two decorative stem options: knit or clay.
The pumpkin is knit as one continuous
piece. No sewing of seams is required. The pattern gives two stem options: a yarn or an oven-baked clay stem.
The yarn stem uses two strands of yarn carried together to create a thicker
fabric. The clay stem is first sculpted. A toothpick is inserted into the stem's base, and then it's baked in the oven to
permanently harden. Once the pumpkin is stuffed, the clay stem is inserted into the pumpkin's top. A wire curly vine can be
attached to the yarn stem option.
