Free crochet pattern of Pumpkin Amigurumi in 3 sizes: 3″, 4″ and 5.5″, that you can crochet by following the instructions and written pattern below. Absolutely perfect as decoration and gift for Autumn / Fall season, or, given to anyone who is obsessed with pumpkin.
These pumpkin amigurumi crochet 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 be always next year to look forward to, LOL.
By using DK lightweight acrylic yarn and crochet with 2.5mm hook, these 3-sized crochet patterns of the pumpkin came out to be in 3″, 4″ and 5.5″ diameter. However, the pumpkin size can be altered by using a different yarn weight, eg. bigger pumpkin by using heavier yarn, DK medium yarn (or bulkier) with 3.0mm hook (or bigger), or, smaller by using lighter baby yarn with 2.0mm hook. Crochet tension will determine the size a little, usually, my tension is quite snug, thus, my pumpkins could be a little smaller compares to yours. Play around with different yarns and hooks, soon you will make lots of pumpkins before you even notice it.

It all started with the urge of making this medium size pumpkin, modified from the popular Big Apple Amigurumi crochet pattern which I shared previously. The apple amigurumi is still a big hit in the search results the whole year-round. Some readers wrote in to ask if I have any pumpkin amigurumi pattern that they can make to pair with the apple amigurumi. For this reason, the orange pumpkin of approximately 4″ diameter was designed based on the same technique as the apple.
Immediately after the 4″ medium-sized pumpkin was done, I feel like I need to make a smaller version of pumpkin to accompany it…. thus, the 3″ smaller pumpkin pattern was produced.
Amigurumi is simply contagious when you get a fever of it, voila, a large size pumpkin was “cultivated” in the same manner after that and there goes another small yellow pumpkin, hahaha… I could sit down a whole day to crochet lots of pumpkins if I have the time. My amigurumi list grows faster than my hands can handle, which makes me wanted to grow more hands to make what I wanted to. Feel the same? Give me a shout if you feel me? *wink*
If you are wondering why the large pumpkin came in 2 tones, yellow and orange…. the reason is simple, because I ran out of orange yarn halfway through LOL. I thought I have enough yarn to make the large pumpkin but end up I can’t find where is the last roll of orange yarn I thought I have. Without wanted to start all over with the large pumpkin amigurumi crochet pattern, I decided to make a special pumpkin that’s with 2-toned skin by joining with yellow yarn, hahaha, one of a kind bizarre pumpkin only found in Craft Passion.

Happy Crochet the Pumpkin Amigurumi family of 3 sizes!
More Details on how to crochet the Pumpkin Amigurumi
Follow the crochet pattern to crochet the green stem and the vine.
This is the stage after finishing the chain stitches for the vine of a medium pumpkin.
This is the stage where the vine has been completed; at Round 4 (Small), Round 8 (Medium), Round 11 (Large).
Proceed to the first stitch (marked by the stitch marker) for the final round of the stem.
Change yarn color at the last yarn-over of the green stem.
Follow the crochet pattern of the pumpkin body, stuff with polyester filling as instructed, followed by the rest of the pattern to complete the pumpkin.
Remember to leave a long yarn for sewing and making the pumpkin ribs.
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.
Repeat the same to make the second one on the opposite side.
Follow the same until you have made 6 vertical crease lines to mimic the ribs of the pumpkin.
Tips: hold the tight/tensioned yarn on the crease firmly so that it will not come loose during the sewing.
This is how the bottom of the pumpkin amigurumi looks like.
