Faux Knit Pumpkins

For the crocheter who loves the look of knit – faux knit pumpkins are for you!

Skill Level: Beginner

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and pictures to help you along the way. The Faux Knit Pumpkins are worked in rows and the stems are crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. Faux Knit Pumpkins are crocheted in worsted weight yarn. Be aware that size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using.

Faux Knit Pumpkins Pattern Example


-Gauge is not important, just keep tension even.

-Chain stitches in the beginning of the row do not count as the first stitch.

-Make sure to crochet the whole pumpkin in half double crochets. This stitch is important to achieve the back bar of the stitch.

-Stems are crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. You will start Round 2 in the next stitch. I suggest using a stitch marker to keep track of your rounds.

-Stems can be made in twine or yarn. (Both look pretty)

  • How to Crochet in the Back Bar Only
  • Begin by making a foundation chain in half double crochets.
  • Turn, Chain 2.

    Chain 2 is not considered a stitch. Crochet through the first back bar.

  • Identify the top of the stitch that is shaped like a V. Directly below the V, you will see a horizontal back bar.
  • Yarn over and insert the hook under the bar.
  • Complete your half double crochet.
  • Continue that along the row.
  • Crocheting through the back bar gives a beautiful faux knit look.
