Crochet Pattern: Pumpkin Pin

By Emilee Gettle – 1 Comment
Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. I love the smell of woodsmoke in the air. Pumpkins and squash in every shade are being harvested and used for decorations. Oftentimes my squash collection finds its way to my oven. Roasted squash, stir-fried pumpkin, cookies and pies all make my dinner table look absolutely mouthwatering. So, when I was thinking up a pattern for this week, this little pumpkin pin found its way off my hook. I added eyes and a smile similar to the happy veggie figurines I’ve seen in Japantown.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 1 3/4″ (4 cm) long, 1 1/2″ (3 cm) wide

Brown Worsted Weight Yarn (approximately 1/2 yard)
Orange Worsted Weight Yarn (approximately 3 yards)
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
2 Small Black Beads
Black Embroidery Floss
Embroidery Needle

crochet yarn size 4

3 dc stitches = 1/2 inch

Using black embroidery floss and a needle sew on black bead eyes. Then, backstitch a smile. Lastly, sew on your pin back, being careful not to sew completely through to the right side of the pumpkin.
