Crochet Pumpkin Motif Pattern

Crochet Pumpkin Motif Pattern

Before we begin...

  • Pattern is in U.S terms

  • This pumpkin motif is crocheted in the round and through the back loop.

  • Blocking is essential in order for coaster/ motif to lay flat. This is easily achieved with a steamer or iron with steam function.

  • I recommend using a cotton yarn if you plan on using these as coasters, as acrylic will melt when it comes into contact with heat.

You will need:

This motif can be used as a coaster, join them together and make a bunting or sew two together to make a plush toy! If you'd like a bigger pumpkin simply use a thicker yarn or/and a bigger hook. I hope you've enjoyed this pattern. Please comment below if you have any questions and I’ll do my very best to help! :) Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crocheting!
