Every fall I get the urge to make some of these and today I pulled aside some new yarns to play with as I make some more. I think it will be a fun thing to do tonight as I watch the presidential debate. I wouldn't think of not watching the debate, but I have a feeling I'll need something to keep me sane as I do. The pumpkin above is made with Vanna's Glamour in the color Bronze. It has some sparkly specks in it which just made it even more fun to make. The yarn is a thin worsted, and crocheted with a size F crochet hook this little mini pumpkin measures just 2 inches in diameter and 1 3/4 inches tall - from bottom to top of stem. I know - it looks a lot bigger than that in the picture, doesn't it. ;^)
If you're interested in how I made the button stem, I wrote a tutorial last year that you can find here.
