This crochet pumpkin square with glow-in-the-dark yarn makes the perfect Halloween accent. In daylight, it features a smiling jack-o-lantern face but after dark, it reveals a spooky surprise!


If you love my other crochet pumpkin patterns, you’ll be happy to know that I have created a flat pumpkin crochet pattern as well! And just like a real jack-o-lantern, its fun and playful grin lights up, thanks to glow-in-the-dark yarn.

If you have never tried mosaic crochet but you want to, this pattern is the perfect easy mosaic crochet pattern to start with. If you can do a single crochet, double crochet, and chain, you can easily make this fun and playful glow-in-the-dark yarn project.

You can crochet just one jack-o-lantern square as a wall hanging or table accent. Or make two as sides of a pillow or several to create a glowing Halloween blanket. They would look eerily cute displayed at a glow-in-the-dark party. How will you use yours?
