Large Colorwork Pumpkins, inspired by a love of all things Fall and an enduring love of colorwork. This softee pattern is just pure fun to knit and creates a lovely work of art. One pattern, four motifs.
This pumpkin is pretty much life-sized, about 12 by 12 inches, depending on which motif you choose and how much stuffing you use. Knit using worsted weight yarn on size 5 needles, you will need about 200 yds each of two contrasting colors and some scrap yarn for the tendrils. You will also need fiberfill – my favorite after making three of these is Cluster Stuff by Morning Glory. And the button! While the button is optional, I think it really adds personality to each pumpkin. Within the pattern are instructions for the various increases, decreases and i-cord. However, the pattern does presume that you have a working knowledge of colorwork and working in the round.
