Wide Ribbed Pumpkin
"When you are getting ready for fall decorating, what could be more fun than whipping up some quick and chunky crochet pumpkins? The Wide Ribbed Pumpkin pattern uses a combination of basic and special stitches to give the decoration a rustic farmhouse look. The pumpkin works up super fast too. In a weekend you can make up some pumpkins and add a homemade touch to your fall decor. This is a great stashbusting project as well for leftover or scrap yarn. Try making pumpkins in a variety of colors from leftover yarn."
