Crochet Pumpkin Patch
Pumpkins are popping up all over the place at the moment so I just had to get in on all the fun. I have previously created a pumpkin tutorial but fancied something a little bit different this year. I have been getting into upcycling more and more recently and thought it would be fun to have a go at designing my own applique patches to attach to old plain t-shirts or even my dungarees! What better design to start with than a cute little pumpkin!
It was super fun to make and is so versatile. Simply mix and match colours and textures and experiment with different yarn weights to explore the oodles of possibilities- the size of your finished crochet pumpkin patch will either be larger or smaller than the one I created if you use anything other than DK weight yarn. I designed mine for upcycling but its ideal for sooo many different projects... hair accessories, crochet pumpkin garland, crochet coaster set, wall hangings, keyrings, the list really does go on.
I hope you enjoy this crochet tutorial. You can find the written instructions below and my very first (proper!) crochet video tutorial over on my YouTube channel. (Its also further down this page too just for ease!)
