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.
