Body of Pumkin
In Desert Glaze start with a CH 13
R1: skip 1 stitch work 1SC in each CH (12)
R2-24: CH1 + turn, work 1SC in BLO in each stitch (12)
R25: CH1 + turn work + 1SS into BLO plus other side of beginning chain (you will fold the bottom of your work away from you & up so that both the bottom end and R24: line up) CH1 fasten off leaving a long tail to sew pumpkin
Stem of Pumpkin (in brown yarn)
CH5 skip 1 stitch + SC in each of the next 4 stitches. Fasten off
Using your tapestry needle thread the long tail left from pumpkin and sew closed each open side of the pumpkin making sure to stuff with poly-fil before completely closing. You will do this by working the needle in and out of the very top stitches working in a complete circle. When you pull the yarn each end will tighten like a drawstring bag. Work a few knots to secure yarn. Hide yarn tails inside pumpkin. Repeat for both sides.
Sew on the stem
Your pumpkin is now complete!
To make pumpkin a little larger or smaller simply start with a foundation chain of 11 for smaller and 15 for larger. Work 20 rows for smaller pumpkin and 28 rows for larger pumpkin.
