Create your own adorable fall pumpkin that is a nifty coaster holder! The charming curly stems can be easily pulled out from the center, transforming into leaf-shaped coasters. It’s a quick and fun project, perfect for sprucing up your fall home decor or gifting to loved ones.
This is a quick and affordable project with only two balls of yarn. For the pumpkin pattern, we will be using a method that creates a bulkier weight yarn by holding three strands together, but this can be worked from one ball! Check out the tutorial: https://brianakdesigns.com/bulky-yarn-1-skein/
If you would like, a bulky weight yarn can be substituted instead of using three strands at once.

Notes for the Crochet Pumpkin with Leaf Coasters Pattern
Stacked Single Crochet (Stsc): Do NOT chain, insert hook into next stitch, yo, pull up a loop, yo and pull through both loops, insert hook in the vertical bar below, yo, pull up a loop, yo and pull through both loops on the hook. https://brianakdesigns.com/stacked-single-crochet/
With just two balls of yarn, you can create a beautiful pumpkin in no time. We’ll be using a cool method that involves combining three strands of yarn to create a bulky weight for the pumpkin. Don’t worry, though – you can still make this project with just one ball of bulky weight yarn if you preffer.
Working in The Third Loop:
Video Tutorial for the Crochet Pumpkin with Leaf Coasters Pattern
Written Instructions for the Crochet Pumpkin with Leaf Coasters Pattern
Crochet Leaf Coaster
With H (5.0mm) Crochet Hook
Rnd 1: Create a Magic Circle and work the following inside the circle: Stsc, dc 11, join with a sl st to the first st in the rnd. (12 sts)
Rnd 2: Stsc in the first st, ch 1, *dc 1, ch 1; repeat from * to * around, join with a sl st to the first st in the rnd. (24 sts including chains)
Rnd 3: Stsc in the first st, 2 dc sts in the next ch-space, [dc 1 in the next, 2 dc sts in the next chspace] 4 times, ch 1, skip the next dc st, (dc 2, ch 2, dc 2) in the next ch-space, ch 1, skip the next dc st, [2 dc sts in the next ch-space, dc 1 in the next] 5 times, 2 dc sts in the last ch-space, do not join. (36 dc sts, and 4 ch sts)
Rnd 4: Working in the third loop or bottom hump of a ch stitch, sc 18, (sc 1, ch 2, sc 1) in the ch 2-space, working in the third loop or bottom hump of a ch stitch, sc 20, do not join. (40 sc sts, and 2 ch sts)
Stem: Ch 21, working in the bottom humps of the ch-sts, 2 sc in the second ch from the hook, 2sc in each remaining st across. Your work will start to curl, which is what we want! Sl st to the base of the coaster leaf, fasten off, and weave in ends. (40 stem sts)
With M/N (9.0mm) Crochet Hook
Row 1: Using the 1 ball to 3 strands method, ch 16, blo sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, blo sc in the next 9 ch sts, blo sl st in the last 5 sts, turn. (15 sts)
Row 2: Ch 1, blo sl st in the first 5 sts, blo sc in the last 10 sts, turn.
Row 3: Ch 1, blo sc in the first 10 sts, blo sl st in the last 5 sts, turn.
Repeats: Continue to work Rows 2-3 until there is a total of 25 rows.
Fold the fabric in half length-wise, matching up the first row with the current row. Ch 1, insert your hook into the blo of the current row and also through the loop from the first row, sl st together. Repeat the crochet pattern across all the sts.
Once the edges are joined, we will work around one side of the pumpkin. Sl st one stitch per two rows all the way around, approximately sl stitching 13 stitches around. Join and fasten off, or fasten off and use your yarn needle to create an invisible join.
To finish off the blo sc side, which will be our base, use your beginning tail to weave through a loop at the end of each round, then pull the opening closed.
Weave in all ends; block leaves if necessary. Stuff the leaves in your own pumpkin shape and pull them out when you need coasters. I hope you enjoy this fall home decor project. Cheers!
