Hello, hi & welcome back! I'm excited to share my Mini Pumpkin Amigurumi free crochet pattern! These handmade cuties can be used year after year as a festive accessory for your desk, a centerpiece for Thanksgiving dinner, a safe prop for baby/toddler photos, or just simply adorable home decor. They would even be adorable strung into a garland!
Each mini pumpkin amigurumi is comprised of the base and stem which are crocheted separately, stuffed with fiberfill and stitched together using a tapestry needle. The finished pumpkins measure approximately 3 inches wide by 2 inches tall. You can easily create a larger pumpkin by using a larger crochet hook and yarn.

Most all of my patterns can be found in printable versions in my Etsy Shop. My printable crochet patterns are condensed, ad-free PDFs written for those of us who prefer to work from a paper pattern instead of a screen.
I love a good video tutorial! This video tutorial of How to Crochet: Mini Pumpkins (Fall Amigurumi) is designed as a visual tool to go along with the written pattern found here on my blog. Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more fun patterns and tutorials!

Add your stuffing!
I find that a little more is better than not enough in order to make a nice plump pumpkin.
Round 12: SC dec six times (6 stitches)
Chain 1, cut trim yarn leaving about a 24 inch tail and pull through your chain.
Using your tapestry needle and the long tail, close the visible hole left in the bottom.
Now, insert your needle through the very bottom center where you ended your work (the hole we just closed), straight up through your stuffing, and out the top where you created your magic circle.
Pull until there is a little tension and wrap around your work and insert your needle back in the bottom hole straight through the top again and pull through. (This will give your pumpkin those cute little curves!)
Repeat this wrapping around, through the bottom, out the top steps until your pumpkin has as many curves as you like. (I did a total of 6 ‘wrap-arounds’ which gave me 7 curves around my pumpkin)
You are the creator here, so pull as tight or as loose as you please in order to give your mini pumpkin a shape that brings you joy!
Tie off, pull back through to the bottom, and trim any excess yarn.
Leave about a 6 inch tail at the beginning and end.
Chain 6, HDC in the 3rd chain from your hook, HDC, SC, slip stitch, chain 1
Trim your yarn and pull through your chain.
Using your tapestry needle, insert one tail of your stem through the top of your pumpkin ever so slightly off center and pull through to the bottom where we created the curves. Repeat this with the other tail but this time insert your needle ever so slightly off center on the direct opposite side of your first tail, pull through to the bottom. (This centers your stem) Now tie both tails together at the bottom and trim any excess yarn.
I hope you have enjoyed creating with me! I really enjoyed designing this mini pumpkin amigurumi crochet pattern!
