Because...pumpkins.

See Intro Video!

Because pumpkins
is created simply by using increases and decreases.  The addition of mohair/silk adds a luxurious touch, and silk-wrapped paper adds a fun, almost crispy Fall texture to the stem.  The pattern includes instructions for two different pumpkin shapes/sizes so that you can add both to your Fall décor!  The only reason needed?  Because pumpkins.

Skills Needed: Working in the round, kfb, m1r, m1l and m1 increases, k2tog, p2tog, and a center double decrease (instructions for this in Abbreviations), i-cord. 

Measurements, approximate (These will vary depending on amount of fiberfill used):

Tall Pumpkin:  Circumference:  17.5 in [44.5 cm]; diameter:  5.5 in [14 cm]; height:  10.25 in [26 cm].

Needles:
Body of Pumpkin:  US size 3 (3.25 mm) double pointed needles and 16 in. circular needles.
Stem:  US size 2 (2.75 mm) double pointed needles.

Gauge:   30 sts and 32 rnds = 4" [10 cm] in chevron stitch.  This pattern is worked at a tighter gauge than normal so the fiberfill does not show through fabric.

Other Materials:  Stitch markers if desired, small tapestry needle, tape measure, 1 bag (16 oz.) polyester fiberfill (you will not need the entire bag), large (1 ½ in. [about 4 cm]) button (optional).  If making tall pumpkin, 1 bag (24 oz.) polypropylene beads, a knee-high nylon, a drawstring fabric pouch (see picture on page 9), or a clean, spare sock to create a bag to enclose the polypropylene beads.  If using the sock, a needle and thread will also be required.
