Pumpkin Mania

Pumpkin Mania has ruled this household recently! I have been crocheting pumpkins
and harvesting them.
This is the haul from our allotment. We grew the following varieties:-

Invincible, Cha Cha, Hundredweight, Jack Be Little, Butternut, Jack O Lantern, Rolet, Sweet Dumpling, Table Queen, Turks Turban and ornamental gourds Jim Jams.

The crocheted pumpkins are from this pattern and YouTube video.

The orange pumpkins are crocheted in Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton and I was able to make 5 pumpkins from one ball of yarn. The fancy yarn pumpkin is made from Wendy Moiselle and I crocheted 2 large and 1 small pumpkin from one ball of yarn. I altered the pattern slightly for the large pumpkins and will upload the details onto my Ravelry page later.
