Crochet Pumpkin Contest

Happy October, my friend!

It's the season of pumpkin patches, pumpkin pies, and pumpkin spice everything! So we thought, why not have a crochet pumpkin decorating contest too?

No need to get elbow deep in pumpkin goo; to win this contest you need nothing but some yarn, stuffing, and your favorite Furls crochet hook!

Get the crochet pattern

Download the Pumpkin crochet pattern for free using code: mypumpkin (coupon code expires Oct 31, 2021)

Grab your materials

Yarn: You can make your crochet pumpkin using any yarn in any color!  The colors used in the samples shown were Furls Wander Acrylic Yarn in Ambrosia, Cocoa, and Conifer

Crochet Hook: Again, feel free to match your hook size to the yarn you chose. We suggest going one size smaller than what is recommended on the yarn label. We used a G+ (4.5 mm) Solar Flare Streamline Swirl

Extras: We also used a Lucet Fork for the vine. 


This is your time to shine! Using any materials to decorate (doesn't have to just be crochet!), create a spooky or creative pumpkin (or both). We are looking for creativity here, so show us your best stuff! Just keep it PG, please.


Then what?

Once decorated, share your project using hashtag #CFpumpkincontest2021 and be entered to win one of two prizes! You can share your projects in the Crochet Foundry Makes Facebook group or on your Instagram or TikTok page. Just be sure to use the hashtag so we can find you!


For a limited time, you can get this pattern for free!
