“Why not imagine a talk with a pumpkin? Why not imagine going off for a drive with a friendly pumpkin, a companion who would not, after all, answer back; who would agree with everything you said, and would at the end of the day appear on your plate as a final gesture of friendship?”
― Alexander McCall Smith, The Woman Who Walked in Sunshine

This is a pattern for a little pumpkin head person. It is worked in the round as much as possible. The pieces are worked separately and then joined. The sample shows domed buttons for eyes and an embroidered nose.

The pattern is written, but does contain some charts, if you find them helpful.

Feel free to add any embellishments you like!
