Start stuffing the pumpkin
Rnd17: (sc2tog, sc 2) repeat around (12)
Rnd18: (sc2tog) repeat around (6)
Fasten off but leave about an 18 inch tail to wrap around to create segments. Finish stuffing. Weave tail through the end stitches to close, then you will take this tail and wrap on the side of the pumpkin. Bring needle up through the bottom center of pumpkin and through top center. Repeat 4-5 times to create 5 or 6 segments, or bumps.
Work a foundation chain crochet for 6 sc, Fasten off with long tail and sew to top of the pumpkin. Weave in ends.
If you’re unfamiliar with how to work a foundation chain crochet, Craftsy has a great tutorial.
