Row 3: ch2, hdc in each st to the end. This will be working in the top of each bobble stitch and the ch1 space between, turn (22)

Repeat rows 2 and 3 13 more times, until you have 14 repeats.

Pumpkin Assembly

With your work flat, fold in half to join Row 1 to your final row with bobbles facing out. Using a whip stitch or similar, sew the two ends together.

Using a needle and long tail, weave in and out of the top of your work, working in the last bobble stitch of your row all the way around. Pull tight and secure to close one end of the pumpkin. Repeat on the other side ready for stuffing, but don’t pull closed. Leave a long tail.

With your choice of stuffing, fill your pumpkin leaving 1-2″ empty. Cinch the top closed, then add or remove stuffing as needed and secure.

With a needle and the yarn tail from the top of your pumpkin, line up the yarn with the side seam. Feed the needle back up through the centre of the pumpkin and pull tight to create a defined section. Repeat this step all the way round, leaving two bobble stitch rows between each section.
