This CUTE PUMPKIN is very easy and quick crochet project, you just need to know how to crochet double crochet stitch and slip stitches. 


So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet this BEAUTIFUL PUMPKIN.


I used leftover Alize yarns (Alize Baby BestAlize Super Lana



You can choose yarn to crochet toys with or your favorite home decor yarn.



For this pattern you will need 5.0 mm crochet hook.
Sewing/Embroidery and yarn needle/tapestry needle for sewing sides together and weaving in ends



Difficulty Level: Level 1 – Easy, for beginners

US crochet terms:

SlSt – slip stitch
CH/s – chain/s
DC - double crochet 
T - turn
ST/s - stitch(es)
REP – repeat

BLO = back loop only



1) A ch1 at beginning of the row DOESN'T count as a stitch
2) Ch3 at beginning of the row counts as a double crochet
3) The basis of the pumpkin is a crocheted flat rectangle in a ratio of approx. 1:2. 
Crochet in back and forth in rows until your rectangle height is 2 times as tall as the width. This formula can be used for any length of chain and any thickness of yarn.
4) The FALL PUMPKIN is crocheted as a one piece as a flat rectangle.
5) Crochet in rows, turn your project when you finish the row
There are endless ways to personalize your amigurumi pumpkins. For larger pumpkins, crochet more stitches in a row and more rows, for smaller ones, crochet less stitches in a row and fewer rows. Pumpkins can be crocheted wider - we crochet more rows, taller - we crochet more stitches, etc.
7) You can also make the FALL PUMPKIN bigger with a thicker yarn or smaller with a thinner yarn.  The finished size will depend on what yarn you use, as well as your tension and hook (as with any amigurumi).
8) There is some sewing, instructions are below. We sew the bottom and top of the pumpkin and sew the stalk. This is easy to do, there are no tricks.




Crochet Hook 5 mm

Work DC in BLO (back loop only)

Mid-size pumpkin

Make a foundation chain: 15 chs

R1: ch3 (dc), 1dc in 4th ch from crochet hook, 1dc BLO in each ch till end of row, turn (16 dc)

R2: ch1, 1sc in 1st st, then work 2 sl st together, 1sc in last st, turn

R3: ch3 (dc), 1dc in BLO in each st till end of row, turn (16 dc)

R4: ch1, 1sc in 1st st, then work 2 sl st together, 1sc in last st, turn

Repeat row R3 and R4.

Make 14 rows.




Seam the rectangle into a "tube."
Fold the crocheted rectangle in half and make a tube, with the wrong side out, crochet the shorter sides together with slip stitches, join stitch to the corresponding stitch, work in BLO. Make a total of 16 slip stitches.

Sew the bottom of the pumpkin by pull the yarn through all the end’s stitches and pull and sew the yarn tightly (similar as to start with the magic circle).

Cut the yarn and sew the end.

Turn the pumpkin inside out and stuff it with toy filling well.

Re-join a new yarn and stitch a series of long posts with a needle and tighten slightly, the pumpkin will start to take shape. We fasten the thread, sew it in the lower part and continue stitching the side row of long columns. We gradually sew all rows of long columns.

Stuff more if needed before finishing the top.


Sew the top of the pumpkin the same way as the bottom, by pulling the yarn through the end stitches. Don’t tight the top completely, leave a small gap in which we will insert the stalk.

Cut the yarn and sew the TAIL in the pumping body.  Hide the yarn tails inside. 

The stem can be crocheted like an i-cord with 4 chain stitches or we can use a stick, a twig, or a piece of cinnamon stick and so on.

We can decorate the pumpkin with a bow, string, flower or button.

And voila! You made a CUTE PUMPKIN DECORATION!


Other sizes.

The number of chains in the foundation and the number of total rows will vary based on how thick your yarn is. Follow this simple formula above to crochet a pumpkin any size you wish.

Mini pumpkins rectangle 12 stitches in a row x 12 rows

Medium pumpkin rectangle: 18 stitches in a row x 16 rows

Larger pumpkins rectangle: 20 stitches in a row x 18 rows
