Witch Way to the Pumpkin Patch

I’ve been having an absolute blast with the Pineapple and Pine Pumpkin Palooza 2021! Seeing all of the awesome pumpkin designs has made it feel more and more like fall.

Today, September 3, 2021, my Witch Way to the Pumpkin Patch pumpkins are free! Just like for the other patterns, check out the above websites and then come back here to go to my Ravelry store and get your free copy of Witch Way to the Pumpkin Patch!

A few weeks ago, I sat down to make some pumpkins. I struggled to find a pattern I really loved (clearly, I hadn’t found the awesome pumpkins from this blog hop yet!) and was easy to make. I wanted a pumpkin that ridged on it’s own and required very little shaping from me. Thus, I give you…Witch Way to the Pumpkin Patch!

These fun, textured puff stitch pumpkins come in three sizes:
Small: 2.5” w x 2” h (3” with stem)
Medium: 3.5” w x 3” h (4” with stem)
Large: 4.5” w x 3.5” h (6” with stem/hat)

In addition to three sizes, there are three stem options: plain stem, stem with vines, and a witch’s hat.

One of my favorite things to use these pumpkins for is to make wreaths like the one pictured above. For this, I needed some leaves. Creativity to the rescue!

Here’s my free pumpkin leaf pattern to go with your awesome Witch Way to the Pumpkin Patch pattern!!

The Lattice Cosy Koozie Pattern

The Lattice Cosy Koozie

This fun design came about when I received my latest box of fun from WeCrochet. When I saw the gorgeous, bright colors of my Dishie Cone cotton, I knew I needed a fun stemless wine koozie for the summer. And, since I’m partial to the criss-cross crochet stitch, the lattice design was born!

It’s a quick make (think an episode of your favorite show) that uses around 50 yards of worsted cotton and a 4.25mm hook. My favorite cotton to use for it is the Dishie Solids or Dishie Cone from WeCrochet (affiliate links).

The free pattern is below. If you’d like a PDF copy, check out my Etsy and Ravelry stores!
