Pumpkin Girl

I was looking for a quick and easy project to do in my free time, and didn’t want anything too complicated, but wanted to be original.  Since it’s Halloween I thought I would try to make something to go with the holiday and came up with this cute little girl.  She is pretty little, only 6″ tall.  This was a nice stress relief from classes and getting stuck on a new pokemon pattern.  She’s sitting with all my other Halloween decorations and is a nice fit.

Assembly:

For the pumpkin, I left a long piece of yarn to sew around the pumpkin to create the contours. 

Attach the head to the pumpkin after creating contours.  Attach arms and legs.

For the hair, I created a rim that I sewed on to her first that was

Round 1: sc 6 in magic ring

Round 2: *2 sc in each sc* around (12)

Round 3: *1 sc, 2 sc in next sc* around (18)

Round 4: *sc 2, 2 sc in next sc* around (24)

Round 5: *sc 3, 2 sc in next sc* around (30)

This allowed a base to attach strands of hair to instead of her looking like she has bald spots.

Attach pumpkin hat on and wrap around head to create a chin strap.
