Cut an 18 inch tail. Weave in all ends.

Turn right side out. Using your yarn needle, stitch a running stitch all the way around and pull to close. This is the bottom of your pumpkin.

Make a secure stitch then pull yarn through the center towards what now is the top of your pumpkin.

Stitch a running stitch all the way around.

Stuff Polyfil and close the top leaving a small opening for your cinnamon stick.

Pull your yarn down to the bottom and back to the top a few times always coming back to the center of the pumpkin. This will help create that pumpkin shape. Secure and fasten off.
