Handmade pumpkins are adorable, and I love the look of crochet projects. This rustic pumpkin tutorial by Heather Corrine on YouTube is quick, but you do need to have crochet basic skills to create this simple pattern. If you don’t know how to crochet, you can watch other tutorials to learn the stitches before starting this video. There may be some crochet jargon that may confuse you if you have never crocheted before. However, if you know someone who can crochet, share them with this video so they can make one for you too. I love the Fall colors that are used on these rustic pumpkins because it creates a farmhouse decor style.

Next, once the 15 rows are finished, put the base stitch and the row that was recently finished together and join it with slip stitches all the way across until attached. Once reached to the end, chain one and trim off with a long tail.

This tutorial is a process, but if you already know how to crochet, just follow along the video. The end results are worth it and I love how they add a nice rustic touch as decor. The outdoor stick is a great idea and a good use of material. These pumpkins can be made any size, you would need to adjust the size based on how many stitches and rows used.
