Free Pattern for Pumpkin Placemat

Pumpkins, pumpkins, everywhere!! Fall is here so what better time to debut my new pattern for a pumpkin placemat! I am so excited to finally be bringing this pattern to y’all!

I was inspired a couple months ago by an adorable pin on Pinterest for a quilted pumpkin placemat. Now y’all, I can do a little bit of sewing, but quilting is something I just haven’t been brave enough to jump into yet. So I decided I would try to crochet one.

I am in love with the Simply Soft Ombre yarn! The color variation that it gave the pumpkin just really makes it so much more fun than if I had used a solid orange yarn.
