I have recently tried out my first amigurumi makes – a cute Halloween Pumpkin. It’s based on the instructions in Annie Obaachan’s “Scary Cute” book which are really easy to follow – I have also put together this ‘tried and tested’ guide to help if you fancy a try.
As the pumpkin is made from a straight piece of crochet, it starts with a simple starting chain.
The pumpkin is really quick to make as you need less than 30 rows…….
…..before it’s time to join your edges.
Pop in your toy stuffing and close the other end.
and work short 3 stitch chains into each double stitch twice.
Once your wobbly stalk is formed, all you have left to do is join it to your fruit and you’ll have an everlasting pumpkin perfect for your autumnal Harvest or Halloween celebrations!
