Free crochet pumpkin pattern
With plush yarn and 3.5 mm crochet hook:
R 1: 6 sc in mc (6)
R 2: (inc)*6 (12)
R 3: (1 sc, inc)*6 (18)
R 4: (2 sc, inc)*6 (24)
R 5: (3 sc, inc)*6 (30)
R 6: (4 sc, inc)*6 (36)
R 7-11: 36 sc (5 rows)

R 14: (2 sc, dec)*6 (18)
Stuff with fiberfill not very firmly.
R 15: (1 sc, dec)*6 (12)
R 16: (dec)*6 (6)
Now we’re going to shape the pumpkin using the tapestry needle and the strong cotton thread.
Make the sections of the pumpkin as follows: go all the way through the center, through the stuffing, to the center of the bottom of the pumpkin. Wrap yarn around outside of pumpkin and then reinsert yarn back through the center of the pumpkin, following the same path. Pull yarn tight to create indentation.
Repeat 5 more times around the pumpkin until you have 6 evenly spaced indentations. Tie off and weave in ends.
With YarnArt Jeans yarn and 2.5 mm crochet hook:
Make 13 ch.
R 1: From the 2nd ch from hook: 12 sc, 1 turning chain
R 2-3: BLO 12 sc, 1 turning chain
R 4: BLO 12 sc
F.o. and leave a long tail for sewing.
Sew edges together to make it a tube.
Sew the stem to the pumpkin top.
