W.I.P. Wednesday 10/16/2013

So for the past several weeks I have been hookin’ together pumpkins in all shapes and styles, and yesterday was no different. This little guy is a free pattern from Ravelry, you can click on the photo for a link. This one is done in Vanna’s Choice in Terracotta and Vanna’s Choice in Olive.

As for my WIP It Good page, an update for that will have to wait till next week, as I am having far too much fun working on my pumpkin patch to pull myself away to work on those items… 🙂 I promise I will do better next week!

The only adjustment I made was on the stem. I did several rounds of single crochets (6 per round as the pattern states). On the last round I did 2 single crochets in each single crochet from the previous round making 12 sc. I found that this not only gave the stem a tapered look, but also made it easier to stitch it onto the pumpkin. I also added the little curl. To create the curl I made a chain of 11. In the second chain from the hook I made 3 hdc, I continued that down the length of the chain.

For a peak at my other pumpkins visit:

I hope everyone is having a great day!
Happy Hooking!
