10 Knit Pumpkin Patterns

Free patterns for you to make this Halloween!

Knit Pumpkin Patterns

Get ready for Halloween by knitting up some adorable pumpkin projects.  In 10 Knitted Pumpkin Patterns: Free Patterns for You to Make this Halloween, you will find a variety of patterns to add to your growing collection of autumn decor.

Even if knitting for Halloween isn't your thing, knitting pumpkin patterns is surprisingly rewarding - and addictive.  Just think about it: once you complete a project, not only will you have complete bragging rights (you did make it yourself, after all), but you'll also have a nice fall decoration that can be used again and again.  Unfortunately, you won't be able to roast any of the seeds from the knit pumpkin patterns (note: real pumpkins aren't quite as fuzzy as knit ones). But unlike a real pumpkin, you won't have to worry about it going rotten.  That seems like a pretty fair trade off to me. 

So how will you use these free knitted pumpkin patterns?  Maybe you'll host your own tea party and use the two tea cozy designs featured below.  If you don't like orange yarn, have some fun with these patterns and use up colorful yarn from your stash.  Who said that knit pumpkins have to be a realistic color?  Bring the colors of autumn into your house by making your pumpkin yellow, brown, or even maroon.

The "Jack Be Little" pumpkin pattern link goes to a page not found on Ravelry. (

Hello peavey! It appears as if the designer is now charging a small fee to download the pattern in full, so we have removed the pattern from our site. Sorry for the inconvenience! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Definitely decorating my apartment with some knitted pumpkins this year! So clever!

I like the pumpkin tea cozy; very creative!

That dishcloth is so cool! I'm bookmarking it for sure.

Love that tea cozy! So cute!

The pumpkin fingerless mitts are really unusual. I haven't seen anything like them!
