- Make the desired amount of pumpkins. Then block if required. Next choose the type of faces for your pumpkins, mine are happy but you could make scary ones. Cut the scrap fabric to make faces and then glue to the pumpkins. Leave overnight to dry completely.
To string pumpkins:
Here I used chunky black wool but you can double up (2 strands) DK wool.
Row 1: *chain 20 sts, join 1st pumpkin by doing 3 sc sts into three spaces at the top of your pumpkin’, repeat this until final stitch and chain once more.
- Row 2: Turn and sc into 2nd stitch and right across. Break yarn off and sew in all ends.
