CUTIE PIE PUMPKIN PATTERN

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

One of my biggest struggles is making more than a handful of everything I create. I get bored really fast and need a change of scenery so to speak, which makes it hard for me to fill stock for markets.







Cutie Pie Pumpkin Crochet Pattern

SO, as I was crocheting away on my millionth(okay maybe 40th) Easy Pumpkin for my upcoming big craft shows this season, inspiration hit. I slapped a stitch marker in my WIP and grabbed the nearest orange skein of yarn.


I like to take some smaller, under $5, items to all my shows, but was having a bit of trouble coming up with some new ones this year. Since apparently my brain is stuck in the pumpkin patch it was trying to come up with a little pumpkin that my horrible eyes could actually see to create. Something just clicked and I had to stop what I was doing and MOVE MOVE MOVE!


I scribbled down my rows as I cruised along, just letting the hook do the work. I just love it when my hands seem to be guided by the spirit and I just have to decipher what they did. I plopped my creation down and thought "well, that doesn't look like I imagined, but wow it's cute!"


So now what? Well I'm making a ton more and sharing this cutie with you so you can have your own bushel too!
