Scary Halloween Pumpkin


"This scary pumpkin is easy and quick to make, and it lasts a lot longer than a real pumpkin. The eyes and mouth are appliques, and the pumpkin is "sculpted" by using small stitches to give its face a craggy, creepy look. The project comes with a full picture tutorial to help you achieve that horrifying appearance."

A reusable jackolantern, what a great idea! I love the way the eyes look embedded in the pumpkin. The stem has a pipe cleaner inside, making is bendable. I am definitely going to be making this soon. I just bought a bunch of orange yarn, so I am all set to begin!

My oldest daughter loves Halloween, so I am always looking out for unusual decorations. This is one of the most impressive crocheted pumpkin patterns Ive ever seen. Its so detailed, I cant believe its as easy as it is. And those eyes! The designer takes you step by step with text and photos so that its nearly impossible to mess this up. Thanks so much for posting this!
