The fall knitting season is underway and if you're needing a little more flavor for the fall there's no better way to add some festivity to your home than with some knitted pumpkins, especially if you have a surplus of orange yarn in your stash. But wait! You don't just have to knit pumpkins, you can have pumpkin hats, pumpkin dishcloths, even a pumpkin toilet tissue cover.
Check out these cool pumpkin knitting patterns:
