Welcoming Autumn with Cozy Handmade Decor Touches

The Cabled Pumpkin was created by Lisa from hollanddesigns on Etsy. Its gorgeous appearance captured my eye and I just had to share this pattern with anyone who loves to crochet and wants to add some fall features to their home. They offer a country charm that will fit in with any decor.

They can be made with light worsted and worsted weight yarn, but if you want smaller pumpkins to create a garland, you can use DK yarn.

It’s deemed an intermediate pattern, so you will need to know your basic stitches, plus some special stitches to create the cables. Right now this pattern is on sale.
