Super Easy Crochet Pumpkin Pattern- beginner-friendly pumpkins that are made from a crochet rectangle.
Many crochet pumpkin patterns are worked in the round, but these pumpkins are worked flat using a single crochet. Then, they are folded over and seamed, gathered, and stuffed. The stem is created by picking up stitches around the top and working in a single crochet for a few rounds. This pattern is ideal for those who are new to crochet or for anyone looking for a quick and easy project.

Repeat, making a turning chain each time you finish a row. Work until your piece measures 10 inches. Cut yarn, leaving a long tail.
How to Assemble the Crochet Pumpkins
To assemble the pumpkin: Once you finish crocheting the piece will look like a rectangle.
Fold the piece over and sew the side seam.
Run a stitch around the bottom of the pumpkin and pull to gather.
Add the stuffing to the pumpkin and push the needle through the inside (including the fiber fill). Run a stitch around the top of the pumpkin. Pull to gather. Weave in ends.
To create the pumpkin stem: Pick up the stitches around the top of the pumpkin. Work in single crochet for a few rounds. Break yarn and sew the top of the stem closed. Weave in ends.
