Fall Pumpkins

pumpkins_1

These little pumpkins are so fun to decorate your table throughout the fall season.  They are super simple to knit! Using a size 1 or 2 needle and one hank of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (color 168) cast on 64 stitches and join in the round being careful not to twist. You cast on the same amount of stitches for each size pumpkin, just adjust the amount of rows you knit to achieve the different sizes.  Knit 25 rows for the x-small, 30 rows for the small, 40 rows for the medium, 50 rows for the large, and 60 rows for the x-large.

Finish by cinching up each end. Create the pumpkin textured bumps by running strands of yarn from the top and center of the pumpkin to the bottom center of the pumpkin.  Create a 4 stitch I-cord (7 rows) in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (color 54) for the stem and attach to each pumpkin. Enjoy!
