Itty Bitty Pumpkins by Ann

Happy Halloween to all!  Today I'm sharing something that's perfect for Halloween but is also great for anytime during the Fall, especially Thanksgiving.

Ann Molvik loves to create knitted home decor for every holiday and season.  For Fall she decided to create some little pumpkins that can be used for home decor throughout the season or even as place card holders at your Thanksgiving table.  How totally fun and adorable!

Ann, who loves knitting with twine, found the perfect colors from The Twinery for this project:  Solid Mandarin Orange for her pumpkin and Solid Peapod Green for the stems.  For the pumpkin pictured above, Ann found a free pattern on Ravelry from Marie Green called Luscious Little Pumpkin.

For her second project Ann created a trio of pumpkins with simple little stems.  She could not find a pattern that she liked so she created her own!  And we are sharing that pattern with you HERE.  How fun to create these for your home or as gifts for friends and family.

To create her little pumpkins, Ann used 50 yards of Solid Mandarin Orange and scraps of Solid Peapod Green

Be sure to look for Twinery Twine in your local craft or knitting stores.  Twine is becoming such a popular fiber and The Twinery has 47 different colors from which to choose.  Find them all in the SRM online store.  It's 100% cotton, 4 ply, washable and Made in the USA!  And it's great for paper crafting and gift wrapping too!
