Tutorial - Adding Lil Punkins to Crochet or Knitting!


Today we're learning how to embroider pumpkins (aka Lil Punkins) onto knit & crochet fabric using supplies you already have on hand and the bullion stitch. Halloween may be over, but pumpkins are still in season so why not add a bit of fun, seasonal decor to your handmakes? 🎃💕

I've got a simple crochet cowl pattern (the Lil Punkins Cowl) featuring this technique, but you could also add a pumpkin here or there on other projects, too. Try adding a pumpkin or two to the leg of a pair of vanilla socks, the cuff of some mitts, or the brim of a hat for a quick & cute project update. No need to start a whole new project either, you can add these pumpkins to existing FO's as well!

I'd love to see how you take this concept & make it your own! Tag me ( @yumiyarns ) if you add some pumpkins to your creations so I can share it to my stories & we can all inspire each other. 💕

Have fun & happy knitting!
