Mini Amigurumi Pumpkins

Don’t get me wrong, I genuinely love summer. But when those first few wisps of cool air breeze in scented with autumn leaves, I turn into a pumpkin spice mess, y’all. This means pumpkin spice flavored and scented everything – from my coffee to my hand soap. It’s a problem, I admit. This also means pumpkin decorations, and here are some cute amigurumi pumpkins that will last year to year. This is a fun, quick, and easy pattern – you can definitely make a few of these in an afternoon!


  • Worsted weight yarn – I used Red Heart Super Saver in Carrot for the pumpkin body pictured above, and Café Latte for the stem
  • E(3.5mm) or F(3.75mm) hook – Use whichever gives you a nice tight stitch to keep the stuffing inside.
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Yarn needle

Abbreviations Used:

sc – single crochet

inc – increase

dec – decrease

st – stitch


Gauge is not terribly important here as long as you are producing a nice tight fabric so that the polyfil won’t pop through your stitches.

Finished pumpkins measure approximately inches tall.

Here’s where the magic starts! You may have what looks like just an orange ball now, but you’re going to turn it into a pumpkin by how you tie it! I put together a quick video to show how to tie up your project to make the sections of your pumpkin. Cut off at least a 16-18 inch strand of yarn and check out the video below!

Once your pumpkin is tied, thread a yarn needle and hide the yarn inside the pumpkin. Sew your stem to the top and enjoy your adorable Mini Amigurumi Pumpkin!
