I spent some time in October knitting pumpkins. Three. To be exact.
They are sort of like potato chips, you can’t stop at one. The only reason I don’t have more of these to show is . . . Fred & George. I know you understand.
The pattern is called Spice and it’s free from Knit Picks. I used various yarn I had leftover including some Plymouth Tweed, some Malabrigo Rios, and some Spincycle Dyed in the Wool. I did not knit a stem and instead went with a sticks from the yard.
They make a cute little pile and, while I might be done for now, I’ll certainly be revisiting this one again.

They are VERY cute, and your sticky stem is genius!
They’re so cute! and I’m sure Fred and George appreciate the time you spent knitting them ?
Adorable!! Thanks for the pattern link. Love the idea of a stick stem rather than a knitted one.
Adorable! I love your stems! Those will be so cute on your mantle tucked in with the twinkle lights! 🙂
They are so cute and will make such lovely accents in your fall decorating! I’ve seen some people use a cinnamon stick for the stems, but I like your “sticks from the yard” solution as well!
Those turned out GREAT, Carole! Love the sticks-for-stems. I can see why Fred and George are enamored with them (and their yarn). . . Super cute. XO
Brrrrt! Penalty for mentioning Fred and George without a picture. But these pumpkins are stinking cute and suitable for all of the fall season.
Those are cute, and sometimes potato chip knitting is just what is needed (especially when it’s Fred and George approved)!
AH, yes, potato chip knitting! I think comfort knitting is perfect this time of year. Very, very cute, Carole.
Those are so cute ! Thanks for the link to the pattern.
Those are so cute! Thanks for linking the pattern.
So cute! I like the sticks rather than knitted stems.
