I dug into the stash and pulled out a skein of chunky orange yarn to knit up a cute pumpkin in honor of autumn.
Pattern: Carol's Pumpkin Pattern, by Carol Sanders
Yarn: Lion Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Spice (a dark, heathered orange)
Needles: Clover US 11 24-inch circular
This is going to be a quick knit! I had forgotten how quickly bulky yarn knits up.
Here are a couple finished pumpkins on display.
I found the pattern online on a yarn store webpage, but I haven't been able to retrace my steps.
If you're interested in the pattern, leave me a comment and I'll send it to you as a Word file. It calls for worsted or DK yarn and 13-inch circs. I'm adapting the pattern to use the yarn I already have. :-)
