Crochet Lil Velvet Pumpkin Pattern by Crochet For You.
For the first time, I whipped up a little pumpkin with some leftover velvet yarns after making Sandy Bobble Velvet Throw Pillow. I was inspired by all cute crochet/knit pumpkins out there. This Lil Velvet Pumpkin is quick and easy to crochet. If you have lately worked with velvet yarns like me, You may definitely have some yarns to try this pattern. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Round 14: ch 1, start from the first st, sc2tog around. Fasten off and cut the yarn leaving 20 – 30″ long yarn tail.
Insert the yarn tail through the yarn needle, and wrap the yarn half around the pumpkin and in through bottom hole to the top hole. Pull the yarn tightly to make a ridge. And again and again, do this few times. (I made 8 ridges). Finally, add a Cinnamon stick into the hole and you are done!
