My husband’s favorite holiday is Halloween, and he gave me the idea for this doll about a year ago. I didn’t feel like I had enough time to design, test, and release this pattern before pumpkin season would be over, though, so I have been pondering this idea for the past year. My husband, of course, pestering me all along the way asking me when I was going to make it. Haha! But now, here she is and she came out better than I could have anticipated. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I enjoyed designing her!
- Worsted weight yarn in skin color (I used Hobby Lobby’s I love this Cotton! in Taupe) and 4 + colors for the pumpkin, stem, tendril, top, and hair.
- Small amount of embroidery floss for smile and eyelashes (optional)
- Size G (4.0mm) Crochet Hook
