Crochet Pumpkin Amigurumi Pattern (3 Sizes)

November 13, 2019 /

Pumpkins!! I love pumpkins, and I love to crochet pumpkin. They just look so adorable with that happy orange color and those cute tendrils. Here is the free crochet pattern of pumpkin amigurumi that you can make yours too.

These crochet pumpkins are absolutely perfect as decorations for the autumn/fall season, so make some to add to your fall decor corner. Instead of letting them sit on the table, chain up a few small pumpkins and it could be make into a beautiful crochet pumpkin garland for your mantel. Or, make a crochet pumpkin for a friend who is obsessed with pumpkins, pumpkin pie, or pumpkin-spiced lattes.

Over the last few weeks, I spent some time designing and developing this free pumpkin crochet pattern. I had so much fun crocheting a few variations and sizes, so here they are in 3 sizes: 3″, 4″ and 5.5” in diameter.

These pumpkin patterns came in a little late this year as it is already November. By now, you should see more Christmas crafts than Fall crafts. If it is too late for you this year, I hope you can bookmark it or pin it for projects to be done next year or for the future, as there will always be next year to look forward.

Crochet Pumpkin Designs

As a crocheter, I’m always curious about peoples’ creative processes. What is it that drives an idea to be created? How do people come up with new ideas on a regular basis? So, allow me to tell you a story of how I came up with this free crochet pumpkin pattern.

It all started with the urge to make a medium-sized pumpkin, modified from my popular Crochet Apple Amigurumi Pattern that I shared previously. From the comments, some readers wrote in to ask if I have a crochet pumpkin pattern that they can make to pair with the crochet apple. For this reason, the first medium pumpkin of approximately 4″ in diameter was designed based on the same technique as the apple.

Immediately after the 4″ pumpkin was done, I felt like I needed to make a mini crochet pumpkin to accompany it, as it looked rather lonely. Thus, the small pumpkin crochet pattern of 3″ in diameter was created and produced.

After having a great time making the first two adorable crochet pumpkins, I just can’t stop making more. Just like when I did my other amigurumi designs (click the link for the free crochet patterns), crochet amigurumi simply makes you creative when you get a hold of it. Voila! A large pumpkin amigurumi was “cultivated” in the same manner after that, and there goes another small yellow pumpkin, hahaha…

I could sit down for a whole day to crochet pumpkins of different sizes if I have the time. I could make so many cute little pumpkins and place them in my garden to make a ‘pumpkin patch’. Maybe one day I will make this dream of mine come through. But for now, my amigurumi list grows faster than my hands can handle, which makes me want to grow more hands. Feel the same? Give me a shout if you feel me.

Is It Easy To Crochet A Pumpkin?

Who can make these crochet pumpkins? It might look like one needs years of crochet experience to make them, but it is actually a pretty easy project. Beginners with basic crochet knowledge and some know-how in amigurumi are able to make it. Click the links to learn the tips if needed.

How long do I need to crochet them? It took me less than an hour each for the first 2 pumpkins and another hour for the large pumpkin, so the total time for a beginner skill-level crocheter would be around 2 hours for 3 pumpkins.

How To Crochet A Pumpkin?

Let me guide you through it with the photo tutorials below with details on making different parts of the pumpkin. The first part is how to crochet a pumpkin stem and vine by using green yarn. After completing the stem, crochet the body of the pumpkin from a top-down direction with orange yarn by following the crochet pumpkin pattern.

Do remember to leave a long yarn tail at the end of the pattern for sewing to make the pumpkin ribs to achieve the typical pumpkin shape. Finally, the base of the pumpkin should look somewhat like a spider web as shown in the photos down below.

What Crochet Stitches Are Used In This Pattern?

Some basic crochet stitches (and their abbreviations) you will need to know are chain stitch (ch), single crochet stitch (sc), single crochet increase (inc), invisible decrease (inv dec), and a normal decrement stitch (2sctog). A great way to learn these basic stitches is to watch a video tutorial such as this one here. Don’t worry if you don’t get it on your first try, just keep on practicing and work on different patterns to keep yourself motivated.

Craft Supplies Needed For Crochet Pumpkin Pattern

In this amigurumi pumpkin crochet pattern, the 2 main yarn colors are orange and green, while yellow is an optional color. You may add other shades of orange and yellow to make a colorful pumpkin patch.

The yarn we are using is lightweight yarn, so DK / light-worsted / 8-ply are all in this category. Besides yarns, you will need a 2.5 mm crochet hook and some polyester fiberfill to stuff the pumpkins. Whilst for the tools, you will need a stitch marker, a long tapestry needle, fabric marker, pins, and scissors.

I simply love the indented top of the pumpkin where the stem sits.

Can I Use Other Yarn Weights to Crochet?

By using the lightweight yarns and crocheting them with a 2.5 mm hook, these 3-sized crochet patterns of the pumpkin came out to be in 3″, 4″ and 5.5″ diameters. Don’t limit yourself to this yarn weight, explore different yarn weights with this free crochet pattern, you may build a heap of interesting pumpkin patches in various sizes. For example, bulky weight yarn like the DK medium yarn (or bulkier) with a 3.0 mm hook (or bigger) will result in a larger pumpkin, whereas by using lighter baby yarn with a smaller hook such as a 2.0 mm hook will produce a smaller, cuter pumpkin.

  2. This is the stage where the vine has been completed; this is at Round 4 (Small), Round 8 (Medium), and Round 11 (Large).
    Proceed to the first stitch (marked by the stitch marker) for the final round of the stem.ami pumpkin 2
  3. Change yarn color at the last yarn-over of the green stem. Pull the orange yarn through the loop.ami pumpkin 3
  4. Follow the crochet pattern of the pumpkin body, stuff it with polyester filling as instructed, and follow the rest of the pattern to complete the pumpkin.
    Remember to leave a long yarn for sewing and making the pumpkin ribs.ami pumpkin 4
  5. Sew the pumpkin to make ribs on it by inserting the needle at the second round after the stem. Use a long tapestry or darning needle to do the sewing.
    Bring the needle out from the bottom of the pumpkin. Pull the yarn tight to make an indentation ridge of the pumpkin amigurumi.ami pumpkin 5
  6. Repeat the process to make the second one on the opposite side.ami pumpkin 6
