Bulky Pumpkin Amigurumi – A Free Crochet Pattern

Fall is my favorite season! I love everything pumpkin. I was inspired to make my own pattern for a yarnkin- a crocheted pumpkin amigurumi! This pumpkin pattern is super easy and works up quick with two strands of worsted weight yarn held together.

Gauge: Not critical for project.

Finished dimensions: Pumpkin measures 5 inches in diameter and 3 inches tall with a 1.5 inch stem. 

Instructions:

Hold two strands together throughout.

Pumpkin.
Ch 18.

  1. In the back loop only, Hdc in 2nd ch from hook; hdc in the back loop of each ch to end (17 hdc).
  2. Ch 1 (does not count as hdc); turn; hdc in the back loops in next 17 stitches (17 hdc)

3-25. Repeat row 2.

  1. Fold the rectangle so that row 1 and row 25 are together. With row 25 in front, insert the hook in the right most stitch of row 25 and through the corresponding stich in row 1. Sl. Continue sl in next 16 stitches (17 sl).

Leaving a long tail for sewing, cut yarn and bind off.

Using a tapestry needle, weave the tail around the entire bottom edge of your tube and cinch tight. For added security, I weave back in the other direction and pull tight. There should be no opening left. Leave the remaining tail and set the pumpkin aside.

Stem.
Ch 7.

  1. In the back loop only, Sc in 2nd ch from hook; sc in the back loop of each chain to end (6 sc).
  2. Ch 1, turn; sc in the back loop only in next 6 sc (6 sc).

3-4. Repeat row 2.

  1. Fold the rectangle so that row 1 and row 4 are together. With row 4 in front, insert the hook in the rightmost stitch of row 4 and through the corresponding stitch in row 1. Sl. Continue sl in the next 5 stitches (6 sl).

Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Finishing the pumpkin.

Stuff the pumpkin with the fiber fill until plump. Pull up the yarn tail from the inside and weave it around the entire top edge of the tube. Before cinching tight, insert your stem into the opening. Cinch the pumpkin closed tightly around the stem. I ran a few stitches through the stem to secure. Hide your tail inside the pumpkin and cut yarn.

    This is one of the nicer ones. Also, thank you for using DK Doubled, instead of Chunky. I have DK & KW. Don’t like the feel of many chuny yarns.
