Large Colorwork Pumpkin

On Sale
Added to cart
This pattern combines a love of the fall season with a love of colorwork. You’ll find a selection of four different motifs: spiders, a vertical decorative design suitable for variegated yarns, a jack-o-lantern with a fun all-over skull and crossbones design on the back, and a not-too-scary haunted village. 

Choose from a round top, like the one pictured here, or a steeper top, creating a more oblong pumpkin.

Enjoy making these colorful, cheerful, and full-of-fall pumpkins for your home.
