Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends and family! We are truly grateful to have the support of people like you, thank you for your unending encouragement and inspiration. To show our appreciation, I wrote this new FREE pattern Family Gathering Pumpkin Rug & I hope you will enjoy it.
This rug is made from ONE strand of super bulky weight yarn (6) using a 9 mm (M/N) hook. Although, you can use THREE strands of medium weight yarn (4) or TWO strands of bulky weight yarn (5) instead. Check out this post on how to work with multiple strands of yarn at once.
This pattern is suitable for Beginners. There are simple row-by-row instructions, crochet terms and abbreviations, step-by-step images, and even diagrams for reference. If you are learning to read crochet patterns, this project is a good start.
If the rug idea is not for you, use this pumpkin to decorate your dining table for fall or make smaller size placemats from a single strand of medium weight yarn (4), working with a 5.5 mm (I) hook.
My favourite yarn options:
- Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick – Use ONE strand
- Bernat Blanket – Use ONE strand
- Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky – Use TWO strands
- Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran – Use THREE strands
- Bernat Super Value – Use THREE strands
- Red Heart Super Saver – Use THREE strands
