The easiest pumpkin ever!

Secret the Pumpkitten began with my desire to make some cute fall or Halloween themed decoration. Pumpkins are really popular this time of year, and what with the endless deluge of them I was seeing on social media, I really wanted to try to make my own.

Long story short, I tried a few patterns, and miserably failed at making my pumpkin. After a while, I decided that I would try on my own to design a pattern that was more approachable for me, and ended up with the pumpkin base that you see here! This pumpkin pattern is truly simple and is created from a sphere shape. As long as you can make a ball, then you can make this pumpkin! After that, the way to create those signature pumpkin grooves is just some easy stitching that pulls the sides of the sphere tight.

Secret the pumpkin cat

I loved the pumpkin that I came up with, but I wanted to add something extra. My sister has the most adorable gray Siberian cat named Secret, and she insisted that I include her in the pattern somehow. Secret is gray with the cutest white tufts of fur, and here are a few pictures from her last outing! She will reluctantly take walks on a leash (read: sit down while you insistently tug on the leash and then inevitably give up).

For my amigurumi, I decided on a cute pose of Secret’s head poking out the top of the pumpkin, complete with tiny paws and the pumpkin top sitting on her head.

The final result is super cute and very on theme for Halloween given the prevalence of cats and pumpkins around this holiday! If you’re also a cat lover, you could definitely change the color of the fur to match your own feline, or any imaginary cat color you wish. I can also imagine this amigurumi sticking around past Halloween, since fall and pumpkins mesh together quite well!
