Crochet a Halloween Pumpkin




Double Crochet Stitch was used in making this stuffed pumpkin.

It's almost Halloween, time to pull out the decorations...

Halloween is quickly approaching. Soon the leaves in the trees will have turned the color of fire (if you live in that part of the country) and a chill will be in the air. Time to pull out the orange yarn and make some holiday decorations.

I found the pattern for this nifty little pumpkin here. It is from Just Plain Fun Crochet Club and All Free Crochet. They have a lot of other really cool patterns to check out.  This pattern is completely free and I really enjoyed crocheting it.  It was super easy and while it may stretch the skills of a beginner, it is totally possible.  I made an orange pumpkin and a red pumpkin.

I thought it would really be cute to turn the pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns with Velcro and felt but I have not had the time to get to the store to buy the felt.  When I do I will make sure to post pictures of my crochet jack-o-lanterns.  You could even make different face pieces and change your pumpkins face with your mood.

On my first pumpkin I made the stem a little too short so it came out stubby.  I didn't like this so on   I extended the stem on my red pumpkin a row further than the pattern indicated and I really liked it better.  Adding some green curly cues would also be a great addition to this crochet pumpkin pattern.

I love Halloween crafts.

It goes together really fast and is is a perfect crochet project to fill a couple of afternoons.  This is a way to decorate your house with pumpkins and way less messy than jack-o-lanterns.

Use leaves and small crocheted pumpkins to add a little fall flare to your home decor.

Pink Pineapple Doily Free Crochet Pattern

Hello and Greetings Everyone I know I haven't been around a lot to post lately but with the holidays, well everyone knows how that goes... But I am back and I have a new crochet pattern to share, it's called the Pink Pineapple Doily The original pattern appeared in 1951 in the publication Star Book No. 87, Doilies, Doilies, Doilies. For a printer friendly and editable version of this post, scroll down to the bottom and click the button that says "Print Friendly." I am absolutely in love with this doily. It looks like a very complex pattern but if your are just starting to make doilies and other crochet goods this is a great pattern to learn how to read other, more complex patterns.

5 Interesting Non Traditional Crochet Square Patterns

I absolutely love to crochet squares.  The very first crochet pattern I ever learned by heart was the granny square.  Even now, years and years later, when I am bored and I just want to crochet for the pure joy of crochet, the granny square is my go to pattern.  I know many other crocheters out there feel the same way and that's why crocheting squares is so popular.  There are so many square patterns out there, a crocheter could never complete them all in a life time.  I decided to search up a few really awesome squares and I felt were unique but still reminded me of that classic pattern I love so much.  These are the patterns that I found.  The stained glass afghan pattern costs a $1.99 but the rest of the patterns listed here are completely free and they are featured on the blogs of other designers.  All of these designs are now additions to my crochet bucket list.
