Let’s all celebrate our favorite squash—the pumpkin! What else can you use as a decoration and food source for two different months in a row? It definitely dominates this season. In true yarn-loving fashion, there is no better way to honor this squash than immortalize it in knit form. Check out these perfect pumpkin patterns.
Knit Pumpkin Patterns
Rather than carving a pumpkin this year, try knitting one. No sharp knife required! My favorite one is the Last Minute Jack O Lantern. Knit and felt this little guy into an awesome little decoration that would look sweet on any mantel or desk for Halloween. Create some friendly centerpieces using the Pumpkin Patch pattern and add some buttons or felt to give character to each one.
Decorate for Thanksgiving dinner with a variety of pumpkin goodies. Whip up some simple knitted pumpkins. They’d make perfect place setting favors for guests. You can even reuse the the Pumpkin Patch pieces. Roll on over to AllFreeKnitting for a collection of 8 Pumpkin tutorials which includes a couple of knit pumpkin wearables.
Here are a few free knitting patterns that aren’t actually pumpkins but have that pumpkiny-orange color which is irresistible. Wear these knit accessories to show your pumpkin pride throughout October and November.
