I only have a few other fall decorations gracing the house so far, but a trip to Hobby Lobby has been scheduled, woo hoo!
The other night, though, I decided that what I needed were a few crocheted pumpkins. Of course, right? Not a ton of options on Pinterest but I found this really great and really easy pattern and churned out three of the little babies immediately for a small coffee table centerpiece.
Could a crocheted vegetable get any cuter????
To make your own festive softie squash, click on over to this pattern at hip2thrift. The smaller two pumpkins I made according to the pattern and they measure about 1 1/2 inches tall and 3 inches wide. For the larger of the mini-pumpkins I used an H hook and increased an additional time on round 6 so that my largest row was 36 sc around. I repeated that 36 sc row 7 times rather than 5. That pumpkin measures about 2 1/2 inches tall (not including the stem) and 4 inches wide.
Tomorrow I'm headed to the farmer's market to look for some pumpkins of the edible variety, so check back in next week for some great pumpkin recipes!
