|1. Pumpkin Body -- Use 2 or 3 strands of yarn to knit your pumpkins.|
|2. Make them all different sizes*, tall or short by the number of rows you want to knit. Run a piece of yarn through all of the loops on the loom and pull tight (this is the bottom). --*(the size of pumpkin and number of rows will directly effect the time required to complete each pumpkin.)|
|3. Make sure that you have a long enough piece left to pull up to the top of the pumpkin.|
|4. Using the yarn needle thread with yarn and pick up the first loops of the piece and pull up, but do not tie.|
|5. Use craft stuffing and fill up the body of the pumpkin.|
|6. Do not over-fill the bodies. Tie the top off and pull up the yarn, running through the middle of the pumpkin.|
|7. Stem and Leaf -- The leaf and stem can be made all together. Starting at the tip of the leaf, wrap on one loop and then add one stitch on each of the next 6 rows.|
|8. Work even on these stitches for 4 rows. Start taking off stitches on the first of the next 4 rows.|
|9. Knit even on the 3 stitches for 4 rows. Add 3 stitches on the next 2 rows and knit even on these 10 stitches for 14 rows.|
|10. Cut the yarn that you are winding with about 20" and thread on yarn needle.|
|11. Run the yarn through the loops on the pegs and sew up the sides of the stem.|
|12. Stuff with a bit of stuffing and sew to the top of the pumpkin. Secure the leaf to the pumpkin.|
|13. Face -- Use a hot glue gun to add buttons for mouth, nose, and eyes.|
