Just popping in today to show you what’s been on my hook this week, friends!
I am still in the process of adding bits and pieces of decor to my new house whenever I can, so I decided to crochet another batch of pumpkins to add to my Autumn decor.
You can check out the first batch of pumpkins I crocheted in this post.
For this second batch, I decided to try the Caron Harvest Pumpkins pattern from Yarnspirations.
I love this pattern! The shaping is so cleverly designed and is worked as you go; it makes finishing each pumpkin a breeze since all you need to do is stuff, pull tight, and sew on the stem. The pattern also has a really nice consistency to it for the increases and decreases. By the time I was on the third pumpkin, I really didn’t have to refer to the pattern much at all.
I did switch up the row counts and hook size for these pumpkins a little. I used a 3.5mm hook instead of the recommended 5.0mm, simply because I prefer a smaller hook for amigurumi-type crocheting, and I made each pumpkin in between the medium and large sized pumpkins (i.e. one more row than the medium called for but one fewer row than the large). I stuck with the recommended Caron Simply Soft yarn.
They provide a lovely pop of colour to my (mostly grey and black) kitchen decor! I’ll be so sad to put them away when the season is over. I’ll have to get started on some Christmas crocheting very soon to replace them with!
Materials I Used:
- 3.5mm hook (I use THESE hooks!);
- Caron Simply Soft in Off White;
- Caron Simply Soft in Country Blue ;
- Caron Simply Soft in Harvest Red;
- Caron Simply Soft in Sunshine;
- Bernat Premium in Chocolate Tweed for stem;
- Tapestry needle.
Here are some pics of the pumpkins before, during, and after assembly:
And here they are all together!
