Hi friends! Welcome back to another free pattern!!! Today's free pattern is such a fun one to make and I think it's just the cutest for Halloween or autumnal decor! This Pumpkin Bear Amigurumi Pattern is so easy to make and it works up so fast and I'm just so excited to share it with you! I actually came up with this idea to make cute little monsters while watching the show Grimm and trying to get into the Halloween spirit. *Fun fact: I actually met and got to model for one of the fantastic SFX artists that worked on Grimm!* I don't know why but Rosalee's Fuchsbau is so cute when it's supposed to be scary (I think?) and that's what inspired me to make cute monsters this year. So, the first one I made is a pumpkin bear, because you all know how much I love teddy bears and I wanted to find an unusual way to make a teddy Halloween-y!

Anyway! Let's kick off the start of the spooky season and just jump into this week's free pattern!!

Assembly:

-Attach the body to the base of the head with the open sides together and sew through both loops of the last row of either piece to connect.

-Using a yarn needle and the extra long tail from the head, (keeping the yarn in a straight line) bring the needle up to the top of the head and out through the bottom where you want the next line to be. Pull the yarn tight enough to make an indent, but not so tight that you snap the yarn. Repeat this step to make as many bumps on your pumpkin as you want. And then embroider the nose.


-Sew the stem onto the top center of the head, attach ears after that, then add the vine, attaching it to the base of the stem.



-Pin arms and legs into place to ensure they’re all lined up properly, and the bear can sit up on its own, then sew everything down.

-Finish up by adding the tail to the lower center back of the bear.

-After you finish sewing everything down, you are all done! Here’s what it should end up looking like:
