Make a reverse MR and fasten off, but leave a long tail. Use it to create the pumpkin’s segments:

  • Using the tapestry needle, go through the middle of the pumpkin until the needle comes out from the bottom center;
  • Pass the needle/yarn over the stitches in BLO — and under the stitches in FLO;
  • Guide the needle to the top center of the pumpkin, insert it into the amigurumi until it comes out from the bottom center again;
  • Pull the yarn tight to define the segment;
  • Repeat the process so that all the six segments are pretty defined.

When finished, fasten off and sew the stem to the top of the pumpkin.
