This article has all 3 pumpkin sizes as the pattern already has it. However, the tutorial below is only for the large pumpkin that you see in the photograph.
Mikey’s pumpkin is bigger as he used Bernat Super Value for his instead of Lily Sugar’n Cream Cotton. The change of yarn changes the sizes of the pumpkin.
To be transparent. I had a little bit of issues with the stuffing. During the crocheting portion, I felt I over stuffed it… After I was done and the stitches settled out a few minutes later, I realized my pumpkin looked deflated. I made a secret hole in the bottom of my pumpkin to add more stuffing to it.
I also manipulated the stem to have a slight bend as most pumpkins never have a straight stem. It’s more artistic license at this point.
