I have been searching and have come up with some talented crafters' patterns.
This little pumpkin is from Talking Crochet and the pattern is here.
I love this one that is knitted from a varigated yarn. It is from Universal Yarns and the pattern is here.
This tiny one is from Repeatcrafterme and the pattern is here.
I am hoping that one of these patterns will work for me and you may like to try one for yourselves in your own Autumn project.
