I have been making these Knitting Machine Pumpkins all week long for my markets. They are quick makes and oh so cute! Honestly I think these are going to be great sellers. I used my Addi Express King sized machine to make large pumpkins, my Off-Brand Machine for mid sized ones, and my Addi Professional for the mini ones.
Basically what I am telling you is that no matter what kind of machine (or what size it is) you can easily make these adorable knitting machine pumpkins too!

Written Instructions for Knitting Machine Pumpkins
Cast on normally.
Crank out correct number of row for your machine.
- Professional Addi (22 needles) – 30 rows
- Addi Express King (46 needles) – 53 rows
- Off Brand Machine (40 needles) – 45 rows
Cast off by using a yarn needle and picking up all stitches from machine.
Cinch one end of the pumpkin closed by pulling the tail.
Stuff pumpkin with polyfil or any other stuffing your desire.
Cinch opposite end closed.
Pull one tail through the pumpkins center, pull tight and tie to second tail causing pumpkin to flatten to a more disk like shape.
wrap one tail around the outside of the pumpkin, then go back through the bottom of the pumpkin via the center holes.
This will create the indents in the sides of your pumpkin. Repeat to create as many “sections” on the pumpkin as you desire.
Add whatever stem you desire and your pumpkin is complete!
