  1. Hello there. It’s a great pumpkin. It’s nice that it’s free too. thank you. 🥰

  2. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the image of a user
    in his/her brain that how a user can know it. Thus that’s
    why this post is great. Thanks!

    1. Yes, of course. First of all, you can do it with different yarn weight and hook size. Also, you can continue crocheting more stitches after round 12 to make the pumpkin wider, or the opposite of skipping a few rounds.

  3. Hi, I’m having trouble with row 12 of the pumpkin. My count is all off, and i’ve frogged and retried it 3 times. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Hi! Count stitches before R12, there should be 84 stitches.
      You must crochet the following in row 12
      R12: [2 HDc in one st, 1 HDc in one st x 2 times] * 4, 2 SC; [2 HDc in one st, 1 HDc in one st x 2 times] * 4, 2 SC; [2 HDc in one st, 1 HDc in one st x 2 times] * 4, 2 SC; [2 HDc in one st, 1 HDc in one st x 2 times] * 4, 2 SC; [2 HDc in one st, 1 HDc in one st x 2 times] * 4, 2 SC; [2 HDc in one st, 1 HDc in one st x 2 times] * 4, 2 SC (108)

      1. Thank you so much for the help! Turns out, I was adding stitches and it threw everything off. I finished the pumpkin though and it’s so cute!
