Halloween Applique: Jack-o-Lantern Pumpkin

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.

approx. 1.50"height x 1.75"length
...but they can vary based on yarn and hook size.

*Crochet hook size: 3.5mm (E)
*Worsted weight yarn: Orange (3yds) & Light Brown (1yd)
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Felt: Green & Black
*Tapestry Needle
*Hot Glue

PATTERN NOTES - must read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.

PUMPKIN with orange
  Rnd 1: 9dc in magic ring, sl st into 1st st (9)
  Rnd 2: ch2, 2dc in next 4 sts, sl st in next st, 2dc in next 4 sts, sl st into 1st st (17)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

STEM with light brown
  ch4, sl st in 2nd st and across (3)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     STEM...sew the stem to the top middle part of the pumpkin. If you like you can use brown felt to create the stem.
     LEAF...using green felt, make a leaf and glue it on either side of the stem.
     EYES & MOUTH....using black felt make the eyes and mouth. You can play around with it and make it however you like, the possibilities are endless.

ch/s:chain/s || dc: double crochet || sl st: slip stitch || st/s: stitch/es || rnd: round || f/o: finish off
