Two-Toned Pumpkin Knitting Pattern to Spruce up Your Fall Decor

Today I am sharing a two-toned pumpkin knitting pattern to add some brightness and out-of-the-box-make to your home.

It almost sounds dramatic?!  

The first time my daughter saw this bright pink and yellow pumpkin, her reaction was something like:  "Who made this?"

When I told her it was me, she said:  "It is definitely not your style!"

She may be right, but don't you also sometimes feel like breaking down the walls and making whatever you want, in the color you want?

Great, I am so glad we agree on this! That's why I want to encourage you to share you makes with me on social media - pleaaassseee.


I shared two different sizes of Pumpkin knitting patterns  in a guest post on Underground Crafters.

easy pumpkin knitting pattern



materials needed:

  • Two Contrasting Colors in Double Knit (Light / Worsted) Yarn
  • Knitting Needles according to the thickness of your yarn (I used 4mm, 6US, 8UK)
  • Blunt Needles (seams)
  • Filling
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Stick or Cinnamon Stick for the stalk
  • Ribbon, Twine or autumnal leaves (optional)
  • The Pattern




I found the TYH Acrylic Yarn on Amazon that looks similar to what I've used:

knitting techniques used:

  • Casting on stitches
  • How to make a knit stitch
  • How to purl
  • How to slip a stitch (purlwise)
  • Casting off stitches


size / dimensions (approximate):

4.6" wide (12cm) x 4" tall (approximate 10cm)


skill level:

Easy to Intermediate.

The kintting project produces a rectangle in an easy knit stitch pattern.

Slip stitches are not worked - i.e. knitted.  It is merely transferred from the one needle to the other.



ABBREVIATIONS:

k     - knit

p     - purl

RS   - right side

sl     - slip

st    - stitch

sts   - stitches



notes:

Gauge is not really of that importance as a thicker yarn will produce a bigger pumpkin and vice versa.

You need at absolute most 20g of each color of yarn to complete the pumpkin.

Always slip stitches purlwise.

When slipping stitches in this pattern, your working yarn, will be at the back of your project, unless indicated otherwise.


knitting pattern instructions

Cast on 43 sts.

Knit as follows:-

Foundational row  -  with A, purl across

1st Row   - with B, *k3, sl next st (with yarn in back) repeat from * across, ending with k3

2nd Row  - with B, *p3, sl next st (with yarn in front) repeat from, p3; repeat from * across

3rd Row   - with B, *k3, sl next st (with yarn in back) repeat from * across, ending with k3

4th Row      - with B, purl across

5th Row   - with A, *k3, sl next st (with yarn in back) repeat from * across, ending with k3

7th Row   - with A, *k3, sl next st (with yarn in back) repeat from * across, ending with k3

8th Row      - with A, purl across

Repeat these 8 rows until you have 44 rows (or until your knitting project is a proper rectangle).

Don’t cast off.

 


finishing your pumpkin:

Leave a long enough tail, cut yarn and thread needle.

With your stitches still on the needle (working from right to left), thread needle through every single stitch.


Insert needle through the stitches again and cinch closed (top of your pumpkin - make sure your pattern is facing upwards).

Weave in the ends.


With right sides together, thread your starting tail and sew the sides together and turn your piece inside out.


Stuff the tube with polyfill – you’ll know when it is too much.


Stitch the bottom, cinch and close.


Add some glue and press the stalk a little bit to make a pumpkin-looking centre. Add tendrils, twine or ribbon to your taste.
