Who doesn't want a bunch of pumpkins hanging around their neck? This can go along with the Pumpkin Earrings I made before. These pumpkins are made the same, but different amounts of double stitches are used this time around.

Step 1: Supplies

The usual:

Crochet Thread Size 10 in Orange, Green, Yellow, and White.
Tatting Needle Size 5
Cross Stitch Needle (for hiding the thread if you like to go that route, I do)
Jump Rings
Iron and Spray Starch
I love this! I also learned from TotusMel's Instructables. Tatting is addictive! I'm still learning how to see how a finished piece is put together. Visualizing a pattern in a finished piece is always difficult for me. But I have literally stayed up all night playing with my thread and needle. So much fun!
It is! When I first got it, I think I made Totusmel's flower over and over and over again :)
So did I :) Along with the rose on her corsage bracelet. Now to figure out how to tweak a design to make it original so I don't get in trouble for copyright infringements. I really do love tatting. I've done chain maille, beadweaving, stringing, wirework, and there are just endless possibilities to tie all of those in to tatting. I'm at the point that I can look at a picture of a finished product and figure out how to make it. Creating something original from nothing...now that is a different story, lol
I have never tried this but it is tempting! I love the necklace!
Learn!!!! It is so much fun!
You did a great job and it is so adorable. I used to be able to tat with a shuttle but developed Carpule tunnel syndrome in my hands and now I can't do it anymore as my hands go numb from the repetitive movement.
Thank you! Sorry you aren't able to do it any more. But it is really cool that you could shuttle tat. I still have a hard time with it.
WOW! I like this very much. You did a fantastic job doing the step by step too. Nice. mmmmm presents. XD
Thanks. It get's hard sometimes to get pictures of the small work and describe what I'm doing. It's nice to know it is somewhat understandable.
These are sweet as (pumpkin) pie! ;)
Why Thank you :)
Very cute and festive!
This is so cute. It might just have to try tatting!
It is lots of fun and really easy once you get the hang of it :)
That's really cute! How long does it take to make it?
I worked on it off and on this weekend. You could easily finish in a day if you have time. I was making it up as I went along and taking pictures of the process so that made making it go slower.
