Hello, knitters! Welcome to my website, where I share my passion for knitting and making cute toys.  

In this pattern, I will show you how to make a knitted Halloween pumpkin that you can use as a decoration or a gift for your friends and family.  This pumpkin is easy to make and requires only basic knitting skills and some orange and green yarn. You will also need some stuffing, a tapestry needle, and a pair of scissors. 

 I will guide you through the steps of making this adorable pumpkin. You will also see how to add some details like the stem, and the face.  

When finished, you will have a lovely knitted Halloween pumpkin.

The pattern is suitable for beginners as well as advanced knitters.

You can also customize the bunny according to your preference by changing the colors or the accessories.
