fall seasonal crochet patterns

At a loss with the kids back in school?* Feeling the end-of-summer blues?* Let me recommend a crochet solution to lift your spirits, with a roundup of my Autumn, Harvest, Thanksgiving and Halloween-related patterns.

*Even if neither of those apply, crochet is always a wise choice, in my experience.

The free (donationware) Pumpkin pattern includes 3 flavours, so you can make a realistic pumpkin, a smiley kawaii version, or a scary Jack-o-Lantern for Halloween.

Fruit-Along CAL at PlanetJune: amigurumi apples and pears

And, of course, you can join in with the Fruit-Along crochet-along running throughout September at the PlanetJune group on Ravelry. My Amigurumi Apples and Amigurumi Pears work up so quickly that people have started posting pics of their yummy-looking fruit already – fun! I’ll do a roundup of all the projects here once the CAL is over 🙂

    I just made your pumpkin the other day an added him to my Fall wreath, which you can view here.
    I just love your patterns, and I always fall back on them for either just fun or to add to other things I am making. For example I also used your bunny ears to add to a hat I recently made and know I will use some of your xmas patterns to add to my planned xmas wreath 😀

    Again I love love love your patterns.

    Hmm… aren’t you going through spring right now, waiting for summer to come around? 😉

      That’s right – spring has just begun here! But my readers are primarily in the Northern hemisphere, so I’ll stick with my ‘old’ seasons with my patterns – I doubt anyone would buy daffodils and lambs and chicks if I started promoting them at this time of year! The customer is always right, so if it’s Fall for you guys, it’s Fall for me too, no matter what it looks like outside 😉

    Hehe, that little pumpkin on the bottom-left, with the round eyes, is really totally the sweetest pumpkin I’ve ever seen!

    Nice post, I’m writing my reply with stormy, rainy weather on the background! Leafs are falling.

    Regards, Sonja.

      Sounds like autumn has truly hit in your part of the world! Spring is just starting here (I still haven’t got used to being in the southern hemisphere). Autumn is my favourite time of year and I’ll really miss seeing the leaves turn to flaming beauty.
