Of course, it should not be missing on time for Halloween: the pumpkin!
What do we need?
Woole in orange and green
Crochet hook 4mm

Pull out the thread, cut off generously with about 30cm.
Thread on a needle and sew on top. Then thread the thread 5x over the middle and pull it out again on the other side and distribute the threads evenly “pumpkin-like”. Tighten the threads in between.
We also crochet here in spiral rounds, which means that we do not end the round with slip stitchn, but start the new round directly.
