Crochet pumpkins have been on my to-design list for a long time! I made the cute tartan plaid pumpkins for Plaid Week a couple years back, but decided to add a few more to my collection. The plaid ones are so lovely to display all through fall, but I also switched up the colors and made some for Halloween.

They turned out quite lovely and I especially love the spicy orange-colored tartan pumpkin. Admittedly, I started with just the gray and black pumpkins, thinking they would be the only colorway 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 to make the plaid check in black and white but ran out of time! I will have to add it to my collection next year.
