Pumpkin Garland

This crochet Pumpkin Garland combines my love of fall and garlands into a cute and quick autumn decoration. Nothing says fall in New England like pumpkins! I love how they come in so many shapes, sizes and even various colors. This pumpkin garland features 3 different pumpkins – a tall skinny, a medium round and a short & fat! All are crocheted with simple stitches and pretty cotton yarn.

Beautiful Cotton Yarn – Sinfonia

For this crochet project I crocheted with Omega’s Sinfonia yarn – this is one of my favorite yarns. It comes in many vibrant and coordinating colors and looks great in all kinds of projects from wearables to home decor items. And because it is cotton it blocks very well which gives all of your projects made with this yarn a polished and professional look.

Stitches Used in the Crochet Pumpkin Garland

To make this crochet pumpkin garland you will need to know all of the basic stitches: chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet and treble crochet. There is one more stitch that is a variation of a basic stitch called a “double crochet 2 together” – this is a decrease stitch that helps create the round pumpkin shape. It is simple to make and I give you an explanation in the instructions below.

Click here to watch a short video tutorial of this technique

Dc2tog (Double crochet 2 together) = [YO, insert hk into next st, YO, draw up a lp, YO, pull through 2 lps on hk] twice; YO, pull through all 3 lps on hk

Sl st (slip stitch) = Insert hook into st, YO, pull through stitch and loop on hook

Sc (single crochet) = Insert hk into st, YO, draw up a lp, YO, pull through 2 lps on hk

Hdc (half double crochet) = YO, insert hook into st, YO, draw up a loop, YO, pull through all 3 loops on hook

Back bar of the Chain = When looking at the right side of a chain, you see many “V’s” and the chain looks like a braid. Turn the chain over and you see a series of bumps – it is in these bumps that you will work across the chain to produce a cord with even edges along both sides

Ch = chain

YO = yarn over

Sp = space

Hk = hook

Lp = loop

Sk = skip

RS = Right Side

Notes:

Pumpkins are worked in the round by working on both sides of the starting chain.

Make sure you work in the back loop only for the second round so that you get the fun details down the sides of the pumpkins.

  1. I love the pumpkin garland. The different sizes and shapes make it so much more interesting to crochet. I love the celtic knot pattern. It is so beautiful. Can’t wait to crochet one of my own.

  2. Thanks for making the fall pumpkin garland. As a relatively new crocheter, I hadn’t heard of sinfonia yarn but it really looks lovely. It makes for a great definition in the pumpkins and comes in great fall colors. Never been to the website but I’ll be sure to return – such special pretty designs!
