FO leaving a long tail to create the bumps of the pumpkin. Close the gap by slipping the needle through the FLO and pull tight.
To create the bumps, start by inserting your tapestry needle through the hole you just sewed up and the MR at the bottom. Pull tight to create the sunken in look. *Now you will take the needle and insert the needle back through the pumpkin, through the top to the bottom like the first bump, and pull tight. This will create an indent on the outside. Continue to repeat from * 5 more times to create 6 bumps, wrapping around the pumpkin a total of 6 times. To help get the bumps even, do one line, then come up and down with the yarn being wrapped around the opposite side to complete the “line” across the pumpkin and continue to do that all the way around the pumpkin. FO and sew in the ends.
