    Julie Measures

    Julie from the blog Julie Measures gave knit pumpkins a classy twist when she added a cable to the design. The heathered gray yarn makes them unique too, although they'd still look amazing in more natural pumpkin colors. If you crochet, she also shares the pattern for the crochet version!
