Finishing

Using your wool needle and the long tail, close the visible hole.

Now, insert your needle through the very centre where you closed your hole, straight up through your stuffing, and out through the centre of your magic circle.

Pull with a little tension and wrap around your work. Insert your needle in the same direction straight through again and pull through. (This will give your pumpkin those cute little curves!)

Repeat this wrapping around through until your pumpkin has as many curves as you like. (I did a total of six ‘wrap-arounds’ which gave me six curves around my pumpkin.)

Tie off, pull back through to the bottom, and trim any excess yarn.

Sew the stalk to the top middle. You can follow the step by step here.
