Fall Felting

Fall and felting just seem to go together, so when I saw several different felted pumpkins on Ravelry I just had to try and make one!  For the pumpkin itself I used the Miniature Felted Pumpkin Pattern from Wool Windings.  I followed the pattern exactly, but for some reason I could not get my stitch count to match the pattern.  I'm not sure if it was something that I was doing wrong or if it is a pattern error, but either way it worked out just fine.  For the stem I wanted something a little more like these that I found on Knitty.com.  I modified the stem pattern a bit by using smaller needles and leaving out a few rows, so it would fit my pumpkin.  I am really happy with how the finished pumpkin turned out.  Now I think I need to make some felted acorns and felted leaves to go along with it!
