- 3.75 mm F crochet hook
- Embroidery floss in a pumpkin color and a stem color (I used DMC floss in #741 and #315)
- Tapestry needle
- Earring posts with backs
- Hot glue
- 1 inch wide
- 1 inch tall
Instructions for pumpkin (make 2):
Ch 4, join with a slip stitch to create a ring.
Round 1: In the center of the ring work (1 hdc, 1 dc, 2 tr, 2 dc, 2 tr, 1 dc, 1 hdc). Join with a slip stitch to close round. Fasten off and weave in ends. Shape up a bit if needed.
Instructions for stems:
Tie the floss you will be using for the stem onto the middle top stitch of the pumpkin. Insert the hook into the stitch as if to front post double crochet (check out the video if you are unfamiliar with this technique). Chain 2, then in the second chain from the hook, work a slip stitch. Work a slip stitch into the base of the stem then fasten off, shape it up, and weave in the ends.
Assembly & Finishing:
Flip both pumpkins over to the back side and glue the posts to them. Be sure to not use too much glue…it is very easy for it to squish through to the front. Let dry/cool completely and they are ready to wear!
