These adorable scented pumpkins are the perfect gift to give to the host of your upcoming Thanksgiving party or to use as a center piece for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Cinnamon sticks

Starting with a MR, place 8 sc into the center. DO NOT JOIN.

Place a stitch marker on your first stitch. Place 2 sc in first stitch and each stitch around.

Round 3: *Place 1 sc , 2 sc in next stitch* Repeat around until you get back to your stitch marker.

Round 4: *Place 1 sc in next 2 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch* Repeat around until you get back to your stitch marker.

Round 5: *Place 1 sc in next 3 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch* Repeat around until you get back to your stitch marker.

Round 6: *Place 1 sc in next 4 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch* Repeat around until you get back to your stitch marker.

** You can continue this pattern as many times as you want for the size pumpkin as you want. Add more rounds for a bigger pumpkin. Use less rounds for a smaller pumpkin. **

Round 7-15: Sc in ever stitch around

** You can adjust the size of your pumpkin by adding more or less rounds. For a smaller pumpkin use less rounds, for a larger pumpkin add more rounds.**

Round 16: *Sc in next 4 stitches, sc2tog* Repeat around.

Round 17: *Sc in next 3 stitches, sc2tog* Repeat around.

Add stuffing. Adding stuffing now will make it easier to stuff the rest at the end.

**If you adjusted the pattern to make a different size pumpkin, be sure to start your decreases the same as the last row of increases you did. **

Round 18: *Sc in next 2 stitches, sc2tog* Repeat around.

Round 19: *Sc in next 1 stitches, sc2tog* Repeat around.

Round 20: *sc2tog* Repeat around. Slip stitch to next stitch. Cut yarn leaving an extra long tail

Finish stuffing your pumpkin.

Using your tapestry needle and long tail, weave your yarn through the remaining stitches to create a drawstring. Pull on tail to tighten your stitches and close the hole. Make sure to secure the yarn by making a knot. DO NOT CUT YARN.

You will now use your tapestry needle and long tail create the pumpkin segments. Push your tapestry needle through the center of your pumpkin. You will be bringing the tail of your yarn from one side to the other side.

Now wrap your tail around your pumpkin and stick pull your yarn back through the pumpkin. You will insert your needle into the opposite side of your pumpkin. Pull your yarn tight so it creates an indent into your pumpkin.

Create as many sections as you want. Remember all pumpkins are different so don’t worry if they’re not perfect. Have fun and be creative. Tie off your yarn to secure and cut your extra string.

Add a spot of hot glue to the middle of your pumpkin and place your cinnamon stick to the center. You may need to cut your cinnamon stick down if you think it is too long.

Add a cute little raffia bow to your cinnamon stick to decorate.

And there you have it! Happy fall y’all!
