I don’t know about you, but I like A LOT of whipped cream on my pumpkin pie! These earrings work up quickly in an evening using DMC Perle #5 thread and measure about 1.5″ in diameter; use #10 crochet cotton to make them a little larger; use cotton worsted to make coasters; double up on crochet cotton to make a potholder. I used worsted yarn and a G hook to make a Christmas tree ornament.
Even if you’re hosting this year, there’s still time to make a pair for yourself. If you’re not cooking, then these earrings would make a great hostess gift. After all, pumpkin is everyone’s favorite fall flavor.
