Pumpkins!

I tried a few new pumpkin patterns since it is now Fall (my favorite time of year.)

The orange one is from a pattern called Lil Dollop Pumpkins.  It is free here. It is by Maria’s Blue Crayon. I used some old orange yarn I had that wasn’t very pliable.  I also ran out of it so I finished with a different shade.  I made the medium size. It is worked in a rectangle and then the ends are sewn together.  I like the texture of it and will make more with a softer yarn.

The two small pumpkins are crocheted but they are done to make them look knit. They are made with slip stitches. Even though they are small, they take some time since using the slip stitch doesn’t build the pattern very fast. The pattern is also free here.  The pattern is by Malloo knits.

The last one is called Spiral Pumpkin. It is free here.  It is designed by Nicki’s Homemade Crafts.  She used the new Caron X Pantone yarn by Yarnspirations. The yarn comes in a skein with 5 different colors looped togehter (they are separate mini skeins). Each set is $8 so a little spendy. I bought mine with a 50% off coupon at Michael’s. The yarn is amazing. It is so soft and nice to work with.  I ended up running short of my cream otherwise the pattern worked up great.  There are lots of color combinations that would be fun to do.
