Crochet this simple Jack-o'-Lantern in a few minutes!
1) ch 8. Starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1sc in each ch (7sc) ch 1 to turn
Rows 2-21) In the back loops only, 1sc in each stitch (7) ch 1 to turn. Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing
Take the 2 ends and overlap them, then sew them together. Do not cut off your yarn end. You will get a cylinder shape.
With the same yarn, put the needle through the top stitches of the pumpkin cylinder, and pull tightly while you sew.
This will close the hole of the pumpkin, fasten off when the hole is tightly closed.
Stuff your pumpkin (I usually tend to stuff my amiguruimi quite tightly, so the shape holds)
Now use the same hole closing technique to the other side of the pumpkin. Remember to pull tightly to close the hole.
Now use the same hole closing technique to the other side of the pumpkin.
Remember to pull tightly to close the hole.
1) ch 2. 5 sc in the first ch
2) In the back loops only, 1 sc in each stitch. Sl st in the next stitch to finish. Fasten off and leave a tail for sewing. Sew the stock to the top of the pumpkin
Using black felt, cut out a jack-o’-lantern face. I had 2 triangle eyes, a small triangle nose, and an odd shaped mouth.
Hot glue gun the face pieces to the pumpkin. And you are finished!
