Crochet Pumpkin Appliques – [Free Pattern] in 2 Sizes

Around this time of the year, with schools starting again, Fall vibes make their way back into our craft rooms! And you know what I mean with fall vibes… Of course, it’s pumpkin time!

Normally, I crochet stuffed pumpkins. However, this year, I thought it would be fun to make a couple of crochet pumpkin appliques to add to basically anything in my kitchen!

I made pumpkin appliques in two different sizes. A small pumpkin that can go as a magnet on the fridge, or embellishment on potholders and dishcloths, or also on napkin rings for your Thanksgiving dinner.

The large pumpkin on the other hand is pretty big and it can even become a cute pumpkin coaster when you crochet with some worsted weight yarn!

Size

For this pattern, you can use any yarn (also scrap yarn!) with the appropriate hook size.

To give you an idea of what size to expect for both the small and large pumpkins, I tried three different yarn weights and measured the final measurement. Find the result in the table below! 🙂
