Crochet pumpkins have been on my list for a long time! I made these cute tartan plaid pumpkins last year for Plaid Week, but decided to add a few more to my collection. The plaid ones are so lovely for to display all through fall, but I would love to make a few more of the patterned ones for halloween! They would look fab in with purple stripes and black polka dots.

They turned out quite lovely and I especially love the orange spice colored tartan 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!

The pattern includes 4 different styles:
Tartan Plaid Pumpkin
Plaid Check Pumpkin
Polka Dot pumpkin
Chevron Pumpkin

The plaids are similar but different. 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.
