Pumpkin Time Garland - Free Crochet Pattern


A favourite from last year for you to enjoy x


Pumpkin Time Garland

Foundation:   
Ch5, join with SS to first chain to form ring

Round 1:
Ch3 (this acts as first DC), DC11, join with SS to top of first DC.

Round 2.
SS into space between first and second DC's; Ch3, 1DC into same space; 2DC into each following space, join with SS to top of first DC = 24 DC's.

Round 3:
SS into space between first and second DC's; Ch3, 1DC into same space; *1DC into next space, 2DC into next space*; repeat * to * to last space; 1DC;  join with SS to top of first DC = 36 DC's.

Round4:
SS into space between first and second DC's; 1SC into each of next two spaces; *2DC into next space; 1DC into each of next two spaces*; repeat * to * 3 times more; 2DC into next space; 1SC into next 5 spaces; repeat * to * 4 times; 2DC into next space; 1SC into next 2 spaces; You are now back at the starting space.

Round 5:
1SC into next 3 spaces; 2DC into first "V" of previous round; 1DC into next space; *2DC into next space; 1DC into next space*; repeat * to * 6 times more; 1SC into next 9 spaces; work *to * 7 times; 1SC into next four spaces, SS into first SC of round.  Join on green yarn to begin stalk.

Stalk:
Ch9, Idc into 4th chain from hook; 1DC into each chain, SS into the top of pumpkin to join, tie off.

There are a few uses..........

Make as many as you like.  Join together into a garland by crocheting a chain attaching pumpkins to the chain as you go.

Use them as coasters during the the Autumn months.

Join them in a vertical line, intermingled with wood, beads and anything else that's autumnal and hang in a window.

If you like the idea but don't crochet then replace the pumpkins with cutouts from card stock or patterned paper and tie onto a length of ribbon.

Hello Karen
Thanks for your comment about my yarn bombing fun. I live in a beautiful sea side town in East Sussex called Bexhill-on-Sea nestled between Hastings and Eastbourne. I love this fun pumpkin garland and might just have to give it a go. Gosh, it can't really be autumn can it! xox Penelope
