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.
