Tutorial

Pumpkin Pattern:
With Pumpkin colored yarn, CO 5 stitches (I used the Long Tail Method).
Row 1: KFB, KFF, K3, KFB, KFF
Row 2: P
Row 3: KFB, KFF, K5, KFB, KFF
Row 4: P
Row 5: K
step 1
Row 6: P
Row 7: K
Row 8: P
Row 9: K2GO, K5, SSK
Row 10: P
Row 11: K2GO, K3, SSK
Row 12: P
Row 13: BO
step 2

With Tapestry needle and black yarn, sew outlines of each eye and mouth, and fill in the space with quick whip stitches. Do not cut off extra yarn from end of project. You will use the extra yarn to secure it to the Napkin Ring Band.
step 3

Black Band Pattern for Napkin Ring:
CO 7 Stitches
Row 1: K
Row 2: P
step 4
Continue in this pattern until piece measures approximately 6 1/2 Inches.
Once finished, you can slightly press with iron. Don’t over press, or you will have a super flat piece and it will be super loose. You want to press for it to be slightly relaxed.
step 5

With tapestry needle, sew ends of band together to make a circle.
Place pumpkin in the middle of the band, and with extra yarn you will attach the pumpkin to the band.
step 6
You’re all done! Be prepared to add a little extra Halloween joy to your next dinner party or table setting.
