Today, on the autumnal equinox, it seemed right to try out another knitted pumpkin pattern. And so I did. I used leftover bits of yarn.
The pattern was a bit fussier than the extremely simple one I did previously. Lots more stitches and increasing and decreasing and the like, but it does add an element of realism to the finished product. Even though my stem looks a thimble.
And now there are two. Until I try the next one. I have one more pattern to go. There are 3 contenders on the shortlist of the "best knitted pumpkin pattern". I intend to declare a winner.
For those of you who are perhaps a bit less enamored with fall and all things pumpkin, I give you this perspective on the season. I do so enjoy a clever read. I intend to go back to the archives at McSweeney's (which I added to my Feedly) and read every other article ever written by Sarah Hutto.
