During Saturdays in October, stop in an purchase "Pumpkin Patch Approved" yarns from Farmhouse Yarns and you will recieve a pattern to knit your own pumpkins! The pattern is $4.99 and is available for purchase too - should you have orange, brown and green yarns at home in your stash. These cute vegetables make great centerpieces. I suppose, should it fit your decor, that a large one would make a fun pillow too!
Thier size is determined by the yarn and the size of the needles you choose. If you look closely, in the lower lefthand corner of the photo is a small pumpkin I knit in a few hours during the Fall Festival. I made it using orange and browns scrap yarn. Basic DPN ablity is needed as they are knit in the round and can be a bit awkward or too small for circulars.
DYNT is open on Saturdays from 10am -4pm. Stop in, pick out your pumpkin (yarn), pull up a chair and start working!
If you don't know how to knit, sign up for the beginers knitting class that starts in October too. It's just 2 Tuesday nights, costs $25 and includes materials.
