Free Crochet Pattern: Tiny Pumpkin Earrings


With Fall finally here and Halloween on the way, I thought it would be the perfect time to make one of my premium patterns available free! These tiny pumpkin earrings are one of my favorite patterns and they are adorable when complete.

Free Crochet Pattern: Tiny Pumpkin Earrings

This pattern is worked in the round, so do not turn after each row. Mark your rows with a stitch marker to keep track of your stitches.

Materials

  • #10 Crochet Thread in Orange, Green and Brown
  • #8 1.50mm Crochet Hook
  • Very small amount of Polyfill or similar stuffing
  • (2) Jump Rings
  • (2) French Hooks

Stitches

  • SC – Single Crochet
  • SS – Slip Stitch

Instructions

Pumpkin

  • Using orange, chain 2 to create magic ring.
  • 6 SC in second chain from hook. (6)
  • 2 SC in each stitch around. (12)
  • *2 SC next stitch, SC next* around. (18)
  • SC around. (18)
  • SC around. (18)
  • *SC Decrease, SC* around. (12) – Begin stuffing here. (I use the blunt end of a ball point pen to tamp the stuffing down.)

Decrease around as far as you can, then finish off, leaving 6-8” tail. Using needle, weave tail through the final stitches to close up the pumpkin. Insert needle into the center of the bottom of the pumpkin, tightly pull through center of top of pumpkin. Wrap the thread around the pumpkin and insert back into the bottom center, bringing it back out of the top center to create a ridge. Repeat 6 more times. Finish off.

Vine

  • Using green, chain 10.
  • 2 SC in second chain from hook, then 2 SC in each stitch to end.
  • Finish off.

Stem

  • Using brown, chain 4.
  • SS in second chain from hook, SS next 2 stitches.
  • Finish off.

Sew the vine and stem to the top of the pumpkin. For the stem, I attached one end, then slid the jump ring around it, folded it in half and attached the other end. You can fold it in half and sew it on, then open up the jump hook and attach it afterward if you prefer. Attach the French hook to the jump ring and you’re done!

This could also make a necklace charm, or leave off the jewelry hardware to create a dollhouse accessory. Enjoy!

    Finally made a pair of these. Love the pattern!! I didn’t like how my vines turned out so I sewed the other end in as well, making a loop. Now to send them off to my friend who loves pumpkins!
