Tiny scented pumpkins are a must for every home. Crochet these little cuties and then stuff them with poyfil. The trick is to add a bit of scented wax to the poly fil, in your favorite Fall scents. I love the pumpkin, apple pie and cinnamon scents of the season. The yarn used was a cake of Mandala in the colorway Centaur. I think the Mandala cake in the colorway Groot would make some pretty awesome tiny scented pumpkins.
Below is a video that tells you how to work with the wax melts, and how to add them to these tiny pumpkins.

Tiny Scented Pumpkins
I used most of the cake to make 24 tiny pumpkins. The video shows how much yarn is left over. Over all it doesn’t take much yarn at all. Just scraps in a (3) weight The colorway used was Centaur, but Groot would be another fantastic color choice to make the tiny pumpkins.
Little bits of rawhide for the stems, and a glue gun. Scented Wax Melts.
If you would like to make a Teeny pumpkin, skip Round 4 and drop down to round 5, taking note that your stitch count between the first set of decreases is 2 sc sts, not 3.
ch 2, 7 sc in the second ch from the hook; join w/slp st, to beg. sc (7 sc)
Note: You can ch 3 and join in a ring if you choose.
ch1, 2 sc in joining st, and in each st around; join w/slp st to beg. sc (14 sc)
ch1, sc in joining st, 2 sc in nxt st; *sc in nxt st, 2 sc in nxt st;* repeat between * * 6x, join w/slp st to beg. sc
ch1, sc in joining st, sc in nxt st, 2 sc in nxt st; *sc in nxt st (2x), 2 sc in nxt st;* repeat between * * 6x, join w/slp st to beg. sc
Note: Continue to crochet, using the “In the round” method. Place a marker in the first st, do not join, but continue around, moving the marker with each round you make.
Round 5-9: Note: you can add more rounds if you would like.
Continue to sc in each st around, moving the marker, so that you can keep track of what round you are on.
You should be at the marked st; *dec , sc in nxt 3 st’s;* repeat between * * around, until you are at the beginning of the round
You should be at the marked st; *dec , sc in nxt 2 st’s;* repeat between * * around, until you are at the beginning of the round
You should be at the marked st; *dec , sc in nxt st;* repeat between * * around, until you are at the beginning of the round
Stop here and stuff your pumpkin. Put in a small amount of stuffing, then add a second round of stuffing with the wax melts mixed in, as demonstrated in the video.
After you have stuffed your pumpkin, continue to dec in the round, until the hole is very small, slp/st across the opening, to finish closing, and finish off, leaving a 24″ to 30″ tail. There is a photo tutorial that shows you how to make those lovely dents, over at the “I Love Pumpkins” post.
I hope you love these scented pumpkins and that they bring you great joy.
