Size 4 Worsted Weight Yarn
I used Hobby Lobby I Love this Yarn in White, Burnt Pumpkin, and Sungold.
Stitches (US Terms)
Sl St- Slip Stitch
BLO- Back Loop Only
We will be using all 3 colors at once
The starting chain will create the height of your pumpkin, and each row will create the width.
If you want to make a smaller or bigger size pumpkin you absolutely can! A good rule of thumb for this pattern is to double your chain count to find the row count. So if you want a bigger pumpkin you can chain 15 of each color for a total of 45 chains. So you will need 90 rows.

Using your yellow yarn, thread through your needle. Tie a double knot at the opposite end of the yarn.
Weave this through the top stitches of your yellow section. Skipping a row, going in through the next. All the way around the top.
