Fall is on the way and I can’t tell you how excited I am!
I don’t think there is anything more Fall than a Rustic Pumpkin! When Mary Maxim sent me the Rustic Pumpkins Kit to make and share, you bet I was over the moon! I mean just the name itself is my style to a ‘T’!

When you grab your own Rustic Pumpkins Kit you get to pick THREE colors from the Woodlands Yarn line. (Fantastic yarn, more on that in a bit) I chose Moss, Beige Heather and Stardust.
Here is what I have done so far!
I have finished up my first of the Rustic Pumpkins and I am currently working on my second! I just love how these fall decorations are constructed. They look a bit on the complicated side, but I promise they are easier than they look! This stitch technique creates an interesting yet simple texture that is sure to wow your guests this holiday season! Perfect for a table centerpiece, in your entrance way, or if you are like me on the piano you do not know how to play!
(I have started using Clover Hooks and HIGHLY suggest trying them! This is an affiliate link at no added cost to you.)
Now that I have started my second one, this pattern is a breeze! It took me a little over a day to complete my first of the Rustic Pumpkins while chasing a toddler and doing laundry, so they’re super quick!
The Rustic Pumpkins are made using Woodlands Yarn by Mary Maxim. This yarn is 90% acrylic, 10% alpaca and super soft! It has some serious squish and makes nice fluffy stitches! I’m only on my second pumpkin but with both skeins I found the center pull right away which is always a plus!
I hope you will go grab a kit for yourself! I’m going to get back to my Pumpkins now and I will be sure to share as soon as I have finished the three Rustic Pumpkins!
