Back to the Pumpkin Patch



I did 4 more "mini' pumpkins and the large pumpkin basket is the "12:01" pattern from the October Magknits.

I used Lambs Pride Bulky (2 orange and 1 green) - one strand - the pattern specifies 3 of Cascade 220.

My pumpkin basket came out a bit more, um, rustic? But I'm happy with it! Next time I would knit a bit more firmly since the pumpking wedges lost some defintion in the wash. Maybe use 11's instead of 13 size needles. I think if it was a little more firm, it would keep the shape better. It resisted blocking after the wash, so I just went with it....

You do great work! I think the pumpkin basket is great.
