05 Grab a glue gun too.
06 And Cinnamon sticks.
Use super bulky yarn
To ensure a good chunky farmhouse style pumpkin you will want to use super bulky/super chunky/14 ply yarn.
Use 10mm (US 15) straight needles. You can use circulars if you want to, but knit flat - back and forth, not in the round.
Use toy stuffing
Use toy stuffing or old yarn to stuff the pumpkin making it nice and full and round.
Make sure you have a darning needle, you will need this to seam the pumpkin and to make that pumpkin shape.
A glue gun is handy to have if you want to secure the stalk to the center of the pumpkin and keep it in place.
To create the stalk of your pumpkin you can use a cinnamon stick or twig and tie some twine around it in a bow.
