The lovely people at Inside Crochet magazine have featured my little Autumn Pumpkin as a cool free pattern – hello to all who are visiting from Inside crochet. Well this little fella has been very useful during the year. I put quite a lot of beads in its base, which makes it a fairly heavy item, but a perfect pin cushion.
Most weeks I use the pins for blocking my knitwear and other pincushions frequently roll away from me as I try to grab or stab the pins. But my trusty pumpkin stays put. As you can see he is well used (not sure why he is a ‘he’ – never mind). Anyway the Autumn Pumpkin has transcended from being a seasonal table decoration to a vital part of my craft table. If you feel like making you own the pattern is available here
