Pumpkin Pixel Art
This Pumpkin Pixel Art is worked in the same manner as the Acorn Square Pixel Art with two round Solid Granny Squares and the Pull Loop Through (PLT) Join-As-You-Go method, however, worked in worsted weight yarn as opposed to lightweight yarn. It could be worked in any weight yarn you like though with respective hook. I am still up in the air how to display this square, though I have temporarily done so pinned to a cork board. You could also use it in a fall blanket like a sampler or as baby blanket, as well as a doily - would look super cute on a square table.
NotesThis square took me about 8 hours, 45 minutes worked in several seatings. Abbreviations: DC - Double Crochet, SC - Single Crochet, sc2tog - Single Crochet Two Stitches Together (Decrease), and PLT - Pull Loop Through Joining Method - Explained.
