Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well and doing autumnal things?
I love autumn, the colours, the countryside, wildlife and wearing scarves and boots.
This weekend an event was held by the National Trust at Castle Ward called Pumpkinfest.
As you can see this was an event, held at a stately home, that embraced all things pumpkin and scarecrow like (no mention of Halloween here) for children. We took the girls and my nephew along to get some pumpkins carved. They chose which one they wanted, scooped out the seeds, drew a face on it and then took them along for some staff to cut out the design.
Here are the pumpkins that we took home.
As it’s that time of the year I have designed my own little crochet pumpkin. Click here for a free pdf of the pattern. If you make one do let me know how you get on.
Isn’t it so cute! It is only 4.75 cm in diameter so quite small but you can adapt the pattern to make a large pumpkin if you wish…hey if you have orange Zpaghetti you could make a giant pumpkin pouffe!
I hope this has inspired you to get making your own pumpkins (carvings or crochet).
