In this YouTube video, Chris Leverdean teaches how to crochet a pumpkin jack-o-lantern granny square, which is perfect for Halloween. Chris uses black and orange yarn to make the pumpkin, but you can also use green or brown for the stem. The video is beginner-friendly, so if you're new to crochet, you can practice basic stitches first.
Chris starts by making a small orange circle and gradually increases its size by adding more stitches. She explains that adding too many stitches makes it ruffle, while too few stitches can make it curve, so it's essential to find the right balance.
Once the orange circle is the desired size, Chris switches to black yarn and turns the circle into a square by making corners with double crochet stitches. She demonstrates how to create the corners and continue crocheting around the circle to complete the square shape.
Finally, Chris suggests using felt to create the face and stem of the pumpkin for decoration, but you can also crochet these parts if you prefer. She mentions a larger project she's working on using these granny squares.
Overall, the video teaches how to crochet a cute pumpkin granny square for Halloween decorations, making it a fun and creative project for beginners.
