Teeny Tiny Pumpkin


October is the month of pumpkins!  This teeny little pumpkin was a really fast knit and is great if you have a little orange wool around.  I used size 3 knitting needles, scrap Wool of the Andes yarn in orange and green hand dyed.



I made a few modifications to the pattern:  I knit the pumpkin in the round on 3 dpn's to avoid extra seeming.  I didn't wrap the pumpkin to make ridges.  Instead, after pulling the bottom closed (the loose ends were enough stuffing) I pulled it through the top next to the stem and pulled tight to get the pumpkin shape.


For the stem, I wrapped the green yarn around my pipecleaner for the vine.
I love this last little picture because it really shows how tiny this pumpkin is.   What a great addition to our growing knit pumpkin collection!
