Hall-O-Ween Night Pumpkin — Crochet Pattern

Happy Saturday Y’all. I got another pumpkin pattern for y’all. Time to keep growing your pumpkin patch.

It’s quick and easy to work up. I literally timed myself while making this one, you will have it worked up from start to finish, in 45 minutes. This is a stash buster or even a scrap yarn project, trying to use up all the yarn — you’ll want to make this one hands down.

Yea I got a question for y’all, when you do stop making pumpkins? Do you only make them from September-October or do you make them all year long? I can honestly tell you, I might not stop. But, I do have a few more I need to finish writing up and designing as well. So, yeah, I just might be making pumpkins the rest of the year, I think that will be ok.

You can’t use up CREATIVITY. The more you USE, the more you HAVE.

Design

Have you ever wondered what holding 2 strands of yarn can create? This pumpkin uses double strands. It creates a bulky piece, you will fall in love. This pumpkin is constructed with using half double crochet and using a yarn under technique and using single crochet with a yarn under technique for the seam. With your double strands held together, not one will come out the same with your color scheme. You will make a rectangle, taking the 2 ends together to seam them and to form a tube. To bring more into a pumpkin shape you will cinch bottom closed first, turning inside out so your seam will be placed on the inside, stuff it and cinch your top closed. Now, comes the best part, you get shape it to form it into a pumpkin, by wrapping your yarn around 4-6 times pulling them tight to create the shape you want. You will enjoy this pumpkin.

Yarn

I want to say thank you to Furls Crochet, for sending me their Wander Yarn for this design. They sent me Thatch and Obsidian, to design this pumpkin. This yarn is 100% acrylic based yarn in worsted weight, category 4. I am telling y’all you have to try this yarn and get yourself some. It’s super soft to the touch, making you not wanting to leave your hands. It slides off your hook like butter. It also has a very nice sheen look to it as well. But, the best feature I love about this yarn and for this design, is the SQUISH factor it beholds. One thing I want to say, it does snag with your top of your hook, so really pay attention to that. You can use my Back End Hook Pull Tutorial, to help not snag your yarn. In closing, this yarn is a new love of mine. It’s affordable $5 a skein, buy 5 or more you get a Free Tote with your yarn. Also, it comes in 24 amazing color options. Don’t forget this as well, Furls Crochet, even offers 14 Palette Packs to choose from.

Hook

Again, I want to thank Furls Crochet for sending me Streamline Galaxy Solar Flare Swirl I/9 (5.5mm), for this design. The Swirl Hooks are my favorite completely. They are medium lightweight, making you soar through your projects in no time. They don’t cramp my hands, leaving me crocheting for hours. They are also my big Eye Candy, by the blending of colors, creating the Swirl. They came in 11 different color options and in 10 different sizes (G+-P). You will fall in love, like I have over the years. I have using Furls Crochet Swirl Hooks since 2017 and I won’t stop.

Oozy Bleeding Pumpkin — Crochet Pattern

This post does contain affiliate links. Which, at no extra cost to you, I will receive a small commission, through the purchase you make.

Are you fan of handmade decor? Are you a fan of horror movies? Are you a fan of making handmade pumpkins, to add to your collection?

Well … the wait is over. My first pumpkin design is officially ready to be made and placed in your handmade decor collection. I wanted to bring the horror movie fan out of me, so I designed this pumpkin. Featuring, the gory details from when someone in the movies has died.

I know that sounds morbid and horrible, but that is what horror movies are about. Am I right. The first one I seen was Chucky, as he is carrying around that bloody knife. Than, I moved onto to Halloween with Micheal Myers, The Nightmare On Elm St with Freddy Kruger and Friday The 13th with Jason. These were my inspiration and brought it to life.

My Husband was also my inspiration through this design, as well. He thought it would be amazing if I made pumpkins, to put them out on display and a little handmade decor to the house.

Design

This design uses Tapestry Crochet through Half Double Crochet, creating the blood illusion and the dripping of the blood. You make a rectangle, seaming the 2 ends together to form a tube, turning inside out. Cinch the bottom close, stuff it and cinch the top closed. Warping yarn around to form the bumps look-a-like on a pumpkin, with the blood looking like it’s oozing out from the top to the bottom. Grab a cinnamon stick or a stick from your yard, to give it that life like stem.

Yarn

This pattern, I wanted to use a more heavier and sturdier yarn, to create this pumpkin. I had some Yarnspirations Red Heart Yarn Super Saver in White and Cherry Red, I just knew these two were perfect. They are a Worsted Weight No. 4, 100% acrylic yarn, perfect to bringing this fun Hallorror to life.

Hook

I love my Furls Crochet Streamline Swirl Hooks, which I used for this design, in my H (5mm) size. They have a lightweight feel, while you are busy stitching away. They have the perfect grip, making me crochet for longer, while not making my hands cramp up.

Special Techniques

Carrying the yarn: when you’re carrying your yarn and turning, after the second stitch, lightly pull not your working yarn tail to hide the opposite color yarn, so that it’s not too visible.

Changing Colors: there are so many tutorial videos out there on YouTube you can find, but this is how I do it. Before completing indicated stitch, let go of working yarn, YO and pull 2nd yarn through all loops on your hook, pull on the dropped yarn to tighten the stitch and locking it

Shaping Pumpkin: when wrapping yarn around pumpkin, make sure you pull tight to form the crease and the round bumps of a pumpkin. Make you sure you warping evenly.

Notes

This pattern uses US Crochet Terminology

Ch’s at the beginning of the row DON’T COUNT AS STITCHES

This pumpkin pattern is worked in turning rows

This pattern uses Tapestry Crochet, to create the blood illusion color work

Don’t FO any color, you will be carrying them both throughout

Pumpkin is worked as rectangle, taking the small ends and seaming them together to form a tube, cinch the bottom closed by weaving in and out, turn inside out, stuff it, cinch the top closed by weaving in and out, than shape the pumpkin

When stuffing, you don’t need to pack the stuffing in, I used about 2 handfuls, it will help keep the pumpkin to sit on its own

Red can be on top or bottom, that will be how you decide which one to cinch up first

You can either poke your cinnamon stick or stick in the top of your pumpkin or glue it with a glue gun

Don’t FO. Move onto seaming.

Seaming

I used Single Crochet seam, for the toughness it provides holding them together. To keep it in the same colors, after finishing last row: don’t FO, keep carrying MC, SC through both ends of the first 6 stitches, change to CC, SC through both sides of the next 14 stitches, FO white about 5” long; FO MC, weave in red end.

This is what you will end up with after seaming and cinching bottom closed.

Cinch Bottom Closed

Now …. Take the CC, weave in and out of each stitch along the bottom, pull tight to close the bottom, tie a few knots to secure and turn pumpkin 🎃 inside out.

How bottom should look after cinching it closed.
Bottom after cinching and before turning inside out

Now, Stuff your pumpkin here to the top.

Now … Let’s cinch the top close

Take about 6”-7” long yarn tail, inserting your yarn through the top of every stitch, start by weaving in and out along the top, coming the same stitch you entered, pull the yarn tail tight to close the top, tie 2 knots to secure and weave the tails in the pumpkin 🎃. Or you can simply make top hole a little tighter by weaving tails around and pulling it tight, tie a few knots to secure and weave those ends in.

How top should look after cinching it closed.

Now ….. Let’s shape the Pumpkin 🎃

You can warp around pumpkin 4-6 times, I chose to do 5 times.

Take a long tail about 30”-32” long, insert needle from the bottom of your pumpkin up through the top, warp the tail around, inserting back through the bottom through the top, warp again another 4 times inserting back through the bottom through the top, after the last one, bring your yarn back through the top to the bottom, tie 2 knots to secure, weave the tails into the pumpkin 🎃.

How pumpkin should look after warping around

Now …. You can add the final touch by placing a stick or cinnamon stick to the top or gluing it to stay in place.

Now, you can add a stick or cinnamon stick into the top hole or if the hole is a little tighter you can glue it. Click Image to Shop Furls Crochet hooks, yarn or tools.

Your New Oozy Bleeding Pumpkin 🎃 is completed. Now, Let’s see your horror inspired Pumpkin.
