If you carve your Halloween pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern too early, it’ll be shriveled and rotten by the time of the big night, and that’s no treat! Knit this pumpkin cozy in the meantime.

This project is great for practicing increases and decreases. Adjust the size by knitting fewer or more increase rows and easily customize it for your pumpkin, or knit one up first and bring it with you to the patch. The pattern fits a pumpkin approximately 11″ in diameter as written.

Knitting help has a great section on increases and decreases.

  1. I love that this allows for a traditional Halloween decoration without the waste. Since it isn’t cut, after the trick-or-treaters have come and gone, you can still treat yourself to some pumpkin seeds and a bit of pumpkin soup. I would not recommend using the large ones for pie, they are grown for that over-sized effect and are too fibrous and dry inside to reliably make a nice pie. Soup, on the other hand….yum!!
