If you can’t tell from my Instagram posts lately, I have a major problem that I’ve been dealing with: pumpkins have taken over every horizontal surface of my room!

It’s a problem that is not made any better by all of the pumpkin patterns out there. Every time I find a new pattern, I think ”I’ll just make one more pumpkin”. Like potato chips, this is never the case.

That’s why I decided to write this post, to share all of the pumpkin patterns that have caught my eye with you, so that you too can become addicted to the pumpkin ways!

Settle in with the pumpkin spice or fall drink of your choice and enjoy the list. These are listed in no particular order and include patterns for both knit and crochet pumpkins.

All of the patterns on this list use a variety of different techniques to create interesting looks to spice up your home decor.
Most but not all of these patterns are available for free, I will be sure to note if that is the case.
All of the photos are the properties of their respective designers and are included to showcase the pattern.
Be sure to go and show these these patterns and their designers some love!

The yarns & supplies I use for my pumpkins:

I use any vaguely autumnal colored yarn that I have.
Some of these include:

Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice in Rust, Terracotta, and Fisherman (Vanna’s Choice is currently on sale for $3.24 instead of the usual $4.99)

Red Heart Soft

Caron Simply Soft

I fill all of my pumpkins with Poly-fil.

Let’s get into the patterns!
