YES! Finally, we are getting into the fall season. I am super excited as I love the fall and winter season. And to get started on fall crochet patterns, I decided I needed some pumpkin earrings. These mini pumpkins are so fast and easy to make. I believe it took me under 15 minutes to make both earrings.
And in case you do not like to make yourself earrings, these mini pumpkins are perfect as appliqués or other decoration ideas for the house.
Luckily, as they are very small and cute, you do not need a lot of yarn. Just 2 colors are needed which is orange and green. I used Lion Brand DIY yarn. You could use even thinner yarn and the pumpkin will be a bit smaller. Or you use very bulky yarn and sew 2 pumpkins together and add some polyfill in between to make a small pillow.
As you can see you have many possibilities with this Mini Pumpkin pattern. I would love to see what you created with this pattern. So be sure to follow me on social media (click the buttons on top of this page) and share your Mini Pumpkin creations.
Now, let’s get right into the pattern. Even though the pattern is super easy and fast, I also made a video for it which you can find at the end of the written pattern.
