Cute Little Pumpkin

Recommended Posts

I originally saw this cute pumpkin in Crochet World Magazine but didn't find the shaping very attractive. I decided to use a wire frame and work around that. This is my first shot at it. It's pretty cute, but needs some adjustments. Trying to put together a fall table.

I know that pattern.  Depending on the type of balloon you use, depends on the size.

I like your idea though.  That is very clever.

I remember seeing that pattern too.  That was very clever making a wire form.  Now is the plan to leave the wire in it.  I know you would pop an remove the balloon or in some cases you make two halves stiffen the halves then put the halves together.

Looks wonderful, and what a great idea!  I made that pattern way back when, never did like how the shaping on mine worked out (looked more like an apple), and last time I found it in my fall decorations, it had gotten dented so it's stayed tucked away.  I wish I'd thought of wire.  Could probably work the ribs around orange pipe cleaners too, hmm.

Nice pumpkin and good save with the wire. Actually pretty clever. Maybe orange wire next time?
