Mini Pumpkin Patch Free Crochet Pattern PDF:

Skill Level: Beginner

Pumpkin Size:

This pumpkin patch is approximately 4 inches tall when made with a size 4 hook and worsted weight yarn.

Pattern:

This pattern includes four miniature pumpkins and three hay bales.

Supplies:

Worsted weight yarn (orange, brown, and tan)
Felt for jack-0-lantern eyes and mouth (black)
Crochet thread or embroidery floss (beige or white)
4.0 mm hook (for pumpkins and hay bales)
3.75 mm hook or smaller (for details)
Needle for sewing
Polyester or other stuffing
Stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to count rounds
Scissors
Glue

Abbreviations:

MC = Magic circle
St = Stitch
Sc = Single crochet (double crochet stitch in UK & Australia)
Sl st = Slip stitch
Rep = Repeat
Inc = Increase
2tog = Crochet two together, also known as decrease
Ch1 = Chain one
F/o = Finish off

A note about the magic circle:

Also known as a magic loop or magic ring. If you prefer not to use a magic circle, simply create a slip knot, chain two, and begin by placing your first six stitches into the first chain. Pull tight on your tail to close the gap and continue with the pattern as written. Once you have worked a few more rounds, weave your yarn tail back and forth on the underside to secure your piece and close any remaining gap.

A note about working in a spiral:

This little pumpkin patch is worked in a spiral which means that each round continues into the next without a slip stitch and chain. You will not turn your work while making this project.

A note about counting stitches:

Using a stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to mark the first stitch of each round will help you track your progress. Move the marker as you complete each round.

If you find you have too many, or too few stitches, don’t worry! You can add an increase or decrease, or simply continue on with the pattern, adjusting the stitch count as necessary. As long as you generally keep to the pattern, there’s no need to pull out your work and start over.

A note about BLO:

For the back loop only row, you will work all of your stitches into the back loop of each stitch. For all other rows, work into both loops of each stitch.

A note about increasing and decreasing:

For an increase, crochet two stitches in the same stitch. For a decrease, crochet two stitches together, preferably using the invisible decrease method.

A note about securing your crochet:

After closing your magic circle and working a few additional rounds, weave your yarn tail back and forth on the underside of your crochet so that your piece is nicely secure. If you like, you can also knot the yarn tail.

A note about gauge:

The size of your pumpkins will be determined by a number of factors; your hook size, the yarn you’ve chosen, and even how tightly or loosely you crochet can significantly change the size of your amigurumi.

A note about reading the pattern:

Before beginning a pattern, it helps to read through the abbreviations list. If you need help with a technique, refer to a written or video tutorial, or keep a crochet book handy. Below is a row from the pattern, followed by a detailed description of the instructions.

Rnd 4: 1sc in the next 2st then 2sc, rep (24)

Beginning round four, add one single crochet into each of the next two stitches. Add two single crochet stitches in the following stitch. Repeat the pattern of one single crochet in each of the next two stitches followed by an increase until you reach the end of round four. There should be 24 stitches in your completed round.

A note about customizing:

These pumpkins are highly customizable! You can add as many rows as you like to make them shorter or taller, try a different color of yarn, or add felt eyes and mouths to turn your pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns—it’s all up to you.

F/o, leaving a long tail for sewing. Weave your yarn tail around the six remaining stitches. Pull tight, knot your yarn, and hide the yarn tail inside the body, pulling up slightly so your hay bale sits flat.

Finishing Your Pumpkins:

Shaping your pumpkins:

To shape your pumpkin, thread the yarn tail with your needle. Next, pull your yarn tail through the bottom gap of your pumpkin and up through the top center of your magic circle. Pull tight, then wrap the yarn around the side of your pumpkin and bring it through the bottom gap and up through your magic circle again. Pull tight; this will create the first line. To create the second line, wrap your yarn around the opposite side of your pumpkin and bring your needle through the bottom gap and up through the magic circle once more; pull tight. Repeat these steps for the last two lines of the pumpkin, creating four equal segments.

Attaching the stems:

Stitch your stems over the top center of your pumpkins, catching a piece of the stitch directly beneath the stem, followed by a piece of the stem, until they are nicely secure.

For pumpkins #1 and #2, you may find it easier to simply bring the yarn tails of your stems from the top of your pumpkin and out the bottom. Tie the yarn tails and hide them in the body of your pumpkin.

Creating a Jack-o-Lantern (optional):

Using black felt, cut eyes and a mouth, then glue to your pumpkin.

Stitching Details:

Add ropes to your haybales by slip stitching crochet thread around the posts of your amigurumi (optional, with cream or white crochet thread):

To surface crochet: with a 3.7mm hook or smaller, insert your hook into a stitch post on the back of your amigurumi, bring your crochet thread through the post and chain one, insert your hook into the next post and slip stich, continue around the hay bale adding one slip stitch per post. Fasten off and hide the remaining thread in your hay bale. (Note: because the hay bales are worked in a spiral, the thread will not match up perfectly at the back.)

With a big slice of pie
Gazing up at the sky
On the very first crisp autumn night.”

And a crinkle underfoot, as if to say
Let’s go strolling through the bright October sunshine
With the dancing leaves ahead to guide the way!”

No in betweens
Just gentle flow
When leaves begin to blow
And flowers grow

The free PDF for this pattern is available here.

Happy crocheting & happy reading!

Skill Level: Beginner

Bunny Size:

This bunny is approximately 8 inches (20 cm) tall when made with a size 4 hook and worsted weight yarn.

Supplies:

Worsted weight yarn (light brown)
Felt for ears (light pink)
4.0 mm hook
Needle for sewing
Polyester or other stuffing
Safety eyes or black yarn, felt or buttons for the eyes
Stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to count rounds
Black crochet thread or embroidery floss for details
Ball point pins
Scissors
Glue

Abbreviations:

MC = Magic circle
St = Stitch
Sc = Single crochet (double crochet stitch in UK & Australia)
Sl st = Slip stitch
Rep = Repeat
Inc = Increase
2tog = Crochet two together, also known as decrease
BLO = Back loop only
Ch1 = Chain one
F/o = Finish off

A note about the magic circle:

Also known as a magic loop or magic ring. If you prefer not to use a magic circle, simply create a slip knot, chain two, and begin by placing your first six stitches into the first chain. Pull tight on your tail to close the gap and continue with the pattern as written. Once you have worked a few more rows, weave your yarn tail back and forth on the underside to secure your piece and close any remaining gap.

A note about working in a spiral:

This little bunny is worked in a spiral which means that each round continues into the next without a slip stitch and chain. You will not turn your work while making this bunny.

A note about counting stitches: Using a stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to mark the first stitch of each round will help you track your progress. Move the marker as you complete each round. If you find you have too many, or too few stitches, don’t worry! You can add an increase or decrease, or simply continue on with the pattern, adjusting the stitch count as necessary. As long as you generally keep to the pattern, there’s no need to pull out your work and start over.

A note about BLO:

For the back loop only row, you will work all of your stitches into the back loop of each stitch. For all other rows, work into both loops of each stitch.

A note about increasing and decreasing:

For an increase, crochet two stitches in the same stitch. For a decrease, crochet two stitches together, preferably using the invisible decrease method.

A note about stuffing:

Stuff your bunny firmly but not so much that it pulls the stitches apart. Take your time and shape as you go so that his head and body are nicely rounded. If your bunny doesn’t look the way you want him to, simply move the stuffing around and add, remove, and reshape until it looks right.

A note about joining:

Ball point pins (also known as sewing pins) are extremely helpful when attaching amigurumi. Before you begin sewing, position your pieces together, then pin securely. Take your time while sewing, picking up a piece of the stitch on the main body, followed by a corresponding stitch in the piece you’re attaching. Work your way around, checking every so often to make sure your crochet is still positioned correctly. Once it’s secure, bring your yarn tail through the body and out of a stitch on the back of your bunny. Leave it there until you’ve brought a second yarn tail through the same hole, knot the two tails, then hide them in the bunny. This will assure that your pieces do not come loose.

A note about securing your crochet:

After closing your magic circle and working a few additional rows, weave your yarn tail back and forth on the underside of your crochet so that your piece is nicely secure. If you like, you can also knot the yarn tail.

A note about gauge:

The size of your bunny is determined by a number of factors; your hook size, the yarn you’ve chosen, and even how tightly or loosely you crochet can significantly change the size of your amigurumi. Try a bigger hook paired with a slightly thicker yarn if you’d like to increase the size of your bunny. Use a 3.75 hook if you’d like to make him a little smaller.

A note about reading the pattern:

Before beginning a pattern, it helps to read through the abbreviations list. If you need help with a technique, refer to a written or video tutorial, or keep a crochet book handy. Below is a row from the pattern, followed by a detailed description of the instructions.

Rnd 4: 1sc in the next 2st then 2sc, rep (24)

Beginning round four, add one single crochet into each of the next two stitches. Add two single crochet stitches in the following stitch. Repeat the pattern of one single crochet in each of the next two stitches followed by an increase until you reach the end of round four. There should be 24 stitches in your completed round.

A note about customizing:

This bunny is highly customizable! You can sew his arms to the side of his body, choose a different color of yarn, or use your crochet thread to give him eyebrows and a cheeky grin—it’s all up to you.

Now let’s get started!

Bunny Head & Body (beginning with the top of the head):

Rnd 1: MC with 6sc (6)
Rnd 2: 2sc in each st (12)
Rnd 3: 1sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (18)
Rnd 4: 1sc in the next 2st then 2sc, rep (24)
Rnd 5-8: 1sc in each st for 4 rows (24)
Rnd 9: 1sc in the next 3st then 2sc in the next st, rep (30)
Rnd 10-11: 1 sc in each st for 2 rows (30)
Rnd 12: 1sc in the next 3st then 2tog, rep (24)
Rnd 13: 1sc in the next 2st then 2tog, rep (18)
(Now is a great time to add your safety eyes. Place them between rows seven and eight with 4-5 stitches in between each eye. If you are making eyes with yarn or crochet thread, you can wait until the bunny is complete to add the eyes.)
Rnd 14: 1sc in the next 2st then 2sc in the next st, rep (24)
Rnd 15: 1sc in the next 3st then 2sc in the next st, rep (30)
Rnd 16: 1sc in each stitch for 1 row (30)
Rnd 17: 1sc in the next 4st then 2sc in the next st, rep (36)
(Now is a great time to begin stuffing your bunny. Add stuffing to the head, firmly but not so much that it pulls the stitches apart. Continue to stuff as you go.)
Rnd 18-24: 1sc in each st for 7 rows (36)
Rnd 25: 1sc in the next 5st then 2sc in the next st, rep (42)
Rnd 26-30: 1sc in each st for 5 rows (42)
Rnd 31: 1sc in next 5st then 2tog, rep (36)
Rnd 32: 1sc in each stitch for 1 row (36)
Rnd 33: 1sc in next 4st then 2tog, rep (30)
Rnd 34: BLO 1sc in the next 3st then 2tog, rep (BLO for entire row) (24)
Rnd 35: 1sc in next 2st then 2tog, rep (18)

(Now is a great time to make sure that you have your bunny stuffed the way you like, making sure you’ve filled in the edges around the bottom sides of his body so that he will stand upright nicely. Make sure to stuff lightly at the very bottom so that he will sit flat.)

Rnd 36: 1sc then 2tog, rep (12)

Rnd 37: 2tog 6 times (6)

F/o, leaving a long tail for sewing. Weave your yarn tail around the six remaining stitches. Pull tight, knot your yarn, and hide the yarn tail inside the body, pulling the underside slightly so that your bunny sits flat. Be careful not to warp the shape of your bunny while pulling the yarn. Note: if you feel it’s necessary to close your gap further before fastening off, you can decrease an additional 1-2 times, then continue with the pattern from there.

Bunny Arms:

Rnd 1: MC with 6sc (6)
Rnd 2: 1sc in the next 2st then 2sc, rep (8)
Rnd 3-7: 1sc in each st for 5 rows. (8)

F/o and leave long tail for sewing, stuff lightly.

Bunny Ears:

Rnd 1: MC with 3 sc (3)
Rnd 2: 1sc in next two st then 2sc (4)
Rnd 3: 1sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (6)
Rnd 4: 1sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (9)
Rnd 5-10: 1sc in each stitch for 6 rows (9)
Rnd 11: 1sc in next 7 st then 2tog (8)
Rnd 12: 1sc in next 6 st then 2tog (7)
F/o and leave a long tail for sewing, do not stuff the ears.

Bunny Tail:

Rnd 1: MC with 6sc (6)
Rnd 2: 2sc in each st (12)
Rnd 3-4: 1sc in each st for two rows (12)
Rnd 5: 2tog six times (6)
Stuff lightly and f/o, leaving a long tail for sewing. Weave your yarn tail around the six remaining stitches. Pull tight and knot your yarn.
Alternatively, you can use a white pompom for your tail.

Ear Felt (optional):

Cut two pieces of pink felt and glue to the front of each ear, making sure the bottom of the felt is flush with the bunny’s head.

Assembling Your Bunny:

Bunny Feet: Attach your bunny’s feet at the BLO edge between rounds 33 and 34 with about four stitches in between so that they sit flat on the ground and hold your bunny upright.

Bunny Arms:

Attach your bunny’s arms between rows 17 and 18, centered nicely with about four stitches in between.

Bunny Ears:

Attach your bunny’s ears centered on either side of his head on rows 3-5.

Bunny Tail:

Sew or carefully hot glue your tail to the back of your bunny so that the bottom is flush with the BLO edge between rows 33 and 34. Make sure that your bunny can sit flat before attaching the tail.

Bunny Eyes:

Place your safety eyes between rows seven and eight with 4-5 rows in between.

Stitching Details

Bunny Nose:

Using black crochet thread, stitch your bunny’s nose across two stitches on the center of his face between rows 9 and 10. You can give him eyebrows, a smile, or whatever you like to make him your own special friend. 😊 Note: if you are adding the eye lines, you may find it easier to stitch them on before adding the safety eyes, making sure not to pull the crochet out of shape.

I want to give a huge thanks to Elizabeth for bringing the story to life in such a whimsical, heartwarming fashion, and another thank you to everyone for all of the support—it is so very appreciated. And without further ado… The Most Wonderful Thing, now available on Amazon! 💕

“In the warmth of a sunbeam, a little bunny sat nibbling clover. It was a beautiful spring morning, and the whole of the valley felt alive in the fresh, crisp air.”

From author Laura Jaworski and artist Elizabeth Iadicicco comes The Most Wonderful Thing, a tale about setting out boldly in search of your heart’s desire.

Join this sweet bunny on his quest; he’ll meet new friends, have a grand adventure, and learn something delightful—that the most wonderful thing was with him all along.

This story is sure to make you smile!

“A tree grows tall from sturdy roots,” said the willow. “We provide shelter for the animals and the insects. We offer cool shade and fresh air to all who are in need. That is our nature.”
