Picture of Tatted Pumpkin Patch Necklace
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

Picture of 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

Step 2: Make your Small Pumpkins

Picture of Make your Small Pumpkins
You are going to need:

2 Orange Pumpkins
4 Yellow Pumpkins
4 White Pumpkins
1 Orange Medium Pumpkin

I made all the pumpkins first and then attached them together with the green thread.

The pumpkins are made the same as the earrings, like I said, except the counts are different.

3 - 3 close, knot
8 connect 8 connect to beginning, close, knot
16 connect 16 connect to beginning, close, knot
For the Medium, add on a last round of 24 connect 24 connect to beginning, close, knot

The white in the pictures, is the small, the orange is the medium.

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 that is a different story, lol

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.

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.

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.
