I am loving all the crochet pumpkins I’m seeing this year and thought that a farmhouse pumpkin would be so fun to design! It seemed like the best idea to grow the Crochet Country set which has already been so popular. These cute little Country Crochet Pumpkins fit perfectly with the farmhouse theme of the other Crochet Country patterns.2 gray and white crochet pumpkins on brick

As with the rest of the Crochet Country set, these pumpkins feature the spider stitch. Check out this spider stitch tutorial if you need a refresher on how to do the spider stitch.

Of course, you can make them in any color you desire! I even whipped one up in orange to see what it would look like in a solid color. LOVE IT. You’ll only need a bit of scrap yarn (the completed small pumpkins weigh around 1 oz and the petite pumpkin less than .5 oz.), some fiber fill, and an optional cinnamon stick.

Both sizes of pumpkins are rather small so as you are looking at the patterns, be aware that the larger of the two pumpkins is the “Small Pumpkin” and the tinier pumpkin is the “Petite Pumpkin”. (I love alliteration!)

How to Crochet the Spider Stitch

Keep a tight tension especially as you start working the spider stitch rows.

When you change colors, there is no need to cut the yarn, just pull the next color up on the inside of the pumpkin.

I used the bottom of the pumpkin (where the magic ring is) as the top when the pumpkin was finished.

To attach the cinnamon sticks, you can use a dot of hot glue to hold them on. I broke my cinnamon sticks into smaller pieces and just pushed them into the center of the pumpkin without using glue.
