Am I the only one that just about this time of the year you go out and purchase that little bundle of squash for decorations? As soon as I see them in the store I jump on them. That will no longer be necessary if I make all of these. They can be used year after year and no more throwing money away again.

I already have several pumpkin patterns but had been looking around for some gourds. These are perfect for what I have in mind. The free download is available at the Lion Brand site (Pattern Number L0106AD Thanksgiving Gourds). The photo in the download is larger and so easier to see details. I do have one slight quibble. As a gardener, that Butternut Squash is not nearly fat enough.
