My garden has not produced any pumpkins or squashes this year, probably due to the lack of time its had from me, so there is only one solution. Knit them!
I found this pattern via Ravelry but here is the Wool Windings blog where you can also find it.
I bought the yarn from Woolyknits my local and favourite yarn store where I can find very cheap 100% yarn for felting. However, this time its not felted completely, but I think I like the effect anyway.
For the larger pumpkin I just doubled the pattern and use the aran yarn doubled on 8mm needles.
Here’s photos pre-felting.
