I just finished this pumpkin. I used Red Heart shimmer for the leaves stem, it was the easiest by far the best pumpkin I have made -) Thank you!

very cute! I am a beginner and this pumpkin looks simple. One question: after you turn the piece, are you always going into the back stitch that is facing you or are you going through what appears to be the front stitch every other time? I hope that makes sense??

It's always the back loop. That gives you an in-out, ribbed effect.

I love this pumpkin; it's so cute! Fall time is calling my name.
