Plaid pumpkins have been on my list for a long time! For Plaid Week this I decided to make it happen.
I really liked the idea of using my tartan plaid color work for these. It feels a bit more versatile to me. They really would work beautifully from October all the way until you get out your holiday decor after Thanksgiving!
They turned out quite lovely and I especially love the orange spice colored pumpkin. Admittedly, I started with just the gray and black pumpkins, thinking they would be the only color way I would make. I decided a pumpkin spice colored one would be cute too, so I ordered some more yarn. Now that they are finished, I actually think the orange one is my favorite!
I wanted them to have a rustic feel, so I used a tweed wool yarn and I really love the finished look. Switching up the yarns would really change the look! I am excited to see what you come up with when you make yours.
