The best season is upon us and I am living my best life! There are so many things I love about Fall- the leaves changing colours, Bob’s Burgers coming back on tv, the lovely chilly weather, hot tea, fall fashion, and of course, Halloween!
I generally do not go to Halloween parties or dress up, but the one thing I do every single Halloween is carve at least one pumpkin. So when I decided to put together a Halloween tree, it was a no-brainer to include a tiny little Jack-o’-Lantern crochet ornament.
Free Jack-o’-Lantern Pumpkin Ornament Amigurumi Crochet Pattern
For all of the ornaments from my Halloween collection, I have decided to use the Knitpicks Shine Sport yarn because I love that finished items look smooth and have a slight sheen. The finished pumpkin crochet ornament measures to be about 3 inches tall including the stem.
The difficulty level of this pattern is Easy and this pattern is written in US crochet terminology.

- Thread a long piece of Grapefruit coloured yarn through the centre of the pumpkin. Going from the top through to the bottom. If you do not want the lines to stand out, use Sweet Potato coloured yarn instead.
- Thread it back into the top centre and back out through the bottom and pull lightly so it indents your pumpkin.
- Continue doing so 7 more times around your pumpkin. Making sure to divide the segments up equally.
- Fortify four of the lines by going over them one more time. This will secure the lines and makes the pumpkin look a little more interesting. Weave the tail end into the centre and cut.
- Pin and sew the Curly Stem Offshoot onto the top of the pumpkin.
- Pin and sew the Stem onto the centre of the top of the pumpkin. If you’re just looking to make a pumpkin, you can stop at this step.
- Cut two small triangles, one small circle, and a moon shaped mouth from your sheet of black felt. Alternatively, you can also just felt wool roving directly onto the pumpkin the create the face.
- Pin the face onto the pumpkin to see where you would like to position it.
- Dab a little bit of glue onto the back of the face features and glue in place. Allow to dry.
- If you’re making this into an ornament, thread a piece of white string through the top of the stem and tie it off to create a loop.
