A few weeks ago I quickly whipped up this mini pumpkin because I some bits of yarn left over from some larger pumpkins I had designed! It was too much yarn to just throw away but not enough to make a large pumpkin, so I decided to make this mini pumpkin!

I shared a quick tutorial and pattern on my Instagram but decided I should add it here too and on my YouTube channel for those who wanted a more in-depth pattern and tutorial! Since making this mini pumpkin, I’ve used mine as a key chain everyday! It’s such a fun accessory for Fall!

yarn + Supplies

For my mini pumpkin I used Red Heart Yarn Super Saver but you can use any medium (4) yarn! For the orange I used the colorway Carrot, for the brown I used Coffee, and for the green I used Sage. Some other yarns I think would work great for this pattern are Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch, Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease, or Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn.

To stuff your pumpkin, you can use Poly-Fil which is commonly used to stuff crochet items. If you don’t have any and don’t have another use for it, you don’t need to go out a buy a big bag just for this project. A great substitute is yarn! If you’re like me, you may have some little pieces of scrap yarn laying around. These are pieces of yarn that are too big to just throw away but too small to use for a project. Well these pieces are perfect for using for stuffing! Since this mini pumpkin is so small you don’t need very much and then you’re not left over with a big bag of Poly-Fil you’ll never use!

An optional supply you may choose to use for this pattern is a key chain! This is a fun accessory you can easily make with this mini pumpkin, and you can either use of your own keys or attach to your kids backpack!

There are many different types of keychains you can buy. I used a ball chain for mine, you can find them HERE on Amazon. Some other options you can use are a Key Ring or a Lobster Claw Clasp.
