Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm so excited to share my Watermelon Garland free crochet pattern with you! This quick and easy crochet pattern makes the perfect summer décor!
This watermelon garland crochet pattern is comprised of the watermelon base, watermelon rind border, and watermelon seeds which are stitched onto the base using a tapestry needle. The finished bunting pieces measure approximately 5 inches wide by 3 inches tall. You could easily make larger watermelons by using larger yarn and a larger crochet hook. The bunting pieces are strung together using jute.

Tie off with a long enough tail to weave in your ends.
Watermelon Rind Border:
With the flat part of the watermelon at the top, join to the top left corner of the base with green yarn.
We're going to create a single crochet border around the outside curve of the watermelon.
When you arrive back at the top right corner, chain 1 and tie off with a long enough tail to weave in your ends.
Using black yarn and a tapestry needle, stitch on five little seeds.
Three seeds across the top and two on the bottom.
I did three pass-throughs of the yarn on each seed.
Tie off on the back side and trim any excess yarn.
Using your tapestry needle and jute, string your finished watermelons into a garland by running the jute through two points on the back top of the watermelons.
I hope you have enjoyed crocheting this Watermelon Garland with me!
