Autumn Pumpkin: Free Crochet Amigurumi Pattern

Autumn Pumpkin
Designed by Dusti Rose Hendricks
Sheep Of Delight Crochet
As much as I dislike summer, I adore autumn.  The weather gets cooler and the trees turn bright colors and there’s a feeling of adventure in the air.
Skill Level-Easy
Gauge- Not important
Worsted Weight Yarn Colors-
                 .35 oz Peaches & Creme Earthy Orange Cotton Yarn
                 Less than .05 oz Peaches & Creme Amber Cotton Yarn
                 F/5 (3.75 MM) crochet hook
                 Yarn or tapestry needle
                 Polyester Fiberfill
Special stitches-This design works best if you use June Gilbank’s Invisible Decrease instead of a typical Decrease stitch.  Instructions can be found on her website at  A typical Decrease stitch can be used, but I like it best with the Invisible version.
                 Rnd…Round                                  Sc…..Single Crochet 
                 Ch….Chain                                     St(s)..Stitch(es)
                 Inc….Increase                                Dec…Decrease
                 Rep…Repeat                                 Sl St..Slip Stitch

Use Earthy Orange yarn. Starting at the top of the pumpkin:
Rnd 1: Sc 8 in magic ring OR Ch 2, Sc 8 in 2nd ch from hook
Rnd 2: Inc 8 (16 sts)
Rnd 3: (Sc 2 in one st, Sc 3 in the next) rep 8 times.  The edges of the piece will begin to waffle; don’t worry, that’s supposed to happen. (40 sts)
Rnd 4: (Dec, Inc 3) rep 8 times (56 sts)
Rnd 5: (Dec, Sc 5) rep 8 times (48 sts)
Rnd 6: [Dec, (Inc, Sc) rep 2)] rep 8 times (56 sts)
Rnd 7: (Dec, Sc 3, Dec) rep 8 times (40 sts)
Rnd 8: (Dec, Sc, Dec) rep 8 times (24 sts)
Rnd 9: (Dec, Sc) rep 8 times (16 sts)
Stuff very carefully, making sure to get stuffing in each lobe of the pumpkin.  Don’t overstuff or the pumpkin will lose its shape.
Rnd 10: Dec 8 (8 sts)
Rnd 11: Dec 4 (4 sts)
Finish off with a sl st.  I used the remaining end to stitch from top to bottom several times to form a small indentation at the top and bottom of the pumpkin before tying it off.
Use Amber yarn.
Row 1: Ch 5
Row 2: Starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, Sc 1.  Sl st 3. 
Finish off with a sl st.

Sew the stem to the top of the pumpkin and draw any remaining ends back into the pumpkin to hide them.
