This adorable, advanced beginner crochet pumpkin pattern is a fun, simple project that works up in no time! The instructions are very basic, but the pattern can be made in any size.
Simply switch the number of beginning chains and add or subtract as many rows as you’d like (making sure you end with an odd number of rows, so you’ll have a tail at each end, once you join the ends).
You can also use any size yarn you’d like, just make sure you adjust your hook size accordingly. You want your stitches to be tight, so the Polyfil doesn’t show through once you stuff your pumpkin.
-Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, Approximately 20 yards
–L11/8mm Crochet Hook
– Polyfil or Extra Yarn for Stuffing
-Dried Branch or Cinnamon Stick for Stem
-Glue or Glue Gun to Attach Stem
-Optional – Ribbon, Leaves, Flowers, etc

Mini Ribbed Pumpkin Pattern
Row 1: Leaving a long tail end, loosely ch 9, working in one loop only, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in remaining chs across, turn. (8sc)
Rows 2-21: Ch 1, working in blo, sc across, turn. (8sc)
You will now join the foundation chain and last row together to form a continuous piece.
Fold the short sides of the piece together & line up the sts (the foundation row should be facing you). Very loosely sl st through the foundation chs & back loops of the last row of sc, repeat across until the piece is fully joined. Fasten off leaving a long tail end.
Forming the Pumpkin
Using a tapestry needle, take foundation tail end, weave it in & out around row ends & cinch closed. Weave in tail end, turn pumpkin right side facing out & fill with Polyfil.
Weave remaining tail end in & out around final row ends & cinch closed (you can leave a slight opening in the middle to fit the stem). Insert tapestry needle through the top center of the pumpkin, pushing tail through the bottom center of pumpkin. Push needle back up through bottom center pulling slightly to create an indent in the top center. Weave needle around top where you cinched it closed to keep indent in place. Fasten off and weave in loose ends once secure.
Finish pumpkin off with stem, ribbon, and other adornments as desired using glue or a hot glue gun.
I hope you enjoyed these cute little ribbed pumpkins!
