I finally got to work on my prototype for the pumpkin crochet-along that I'll be hosting next month and here's what I have so far...
My goal was to make it large enough to decorate, but not so large that it got boring to make. the pumpkin fits into my hand nicely, with no room for anything else.
I stuffed it with a combination of fiber fill and cut up t-shirt from my rag bin so that it has a nice weight. This ami definitely falls into the "launchable" category.
I'm not totally happy with the stem and little wispy bit of vine, but there is still time to work that out. perhaps, it's because the stem is just a little too long or maybe it's just the shaping. What do you think?
Speaking of "what do you think," this is your chance to get your input on the pattern before I release it for the crochet-along. Remember that the goal is for me to provide you with a basic pumpkin that you can then decorate to show your own style. So, tell me what you think about this design!
