Fall… Days are getting shorter, nights are getting colder, light rain falls oftener.  And your mood, just like the temperature, is getting down little by little. That is why a warm and cozy house is a must to make you feel better and drive away sadness and gloom from your life.

The nature itself changes the world around us, trying to make it brighter and more colorful - to protect us from autumn sadness and anxiety. Just look around - it has it all – all the shades of red, yellow, terracotta, green and brown colors. So bright, beautiful, and extremely cozy.  And immediately you feel like decorating your house using the same shades and colors for it.

I have made a collection of crocheted autumn seasonal vegetables to decorate my apartment terrace. I have it all – the pumpkins, pattypans, zucchini. Every morning, having my coffee or every evening, relishing my honey and cinnamon hot tea or glass of vine, I relax and enjoy it there.

Let’s crochet these cozy vegetables together! My free crochet pattern and video tutorial will help you make this nice little pattypan thing today.

To crochet it, take a yarn ball (any type of it) and a crochet hook that has matchable characteristics. It will take around 170 meters of the main color to make the vegetable; plus around 15 meters of additional color to make the vegetable tail.
To make this white pattypan I took Lanosso Natural Merino yarn (50% wool, 25% viscose, 25% polyester) 901 color( light beige), 280m per 100g; 2.5 mm hook.

To crochet my blue vegetable I took YarnArt BABY yarn (acrylic, 100%); 150m per 50g, 2.5 mm hook. The crocheted pattypan diameter is about 16 cm.

I used Drops Lima to crochet the pattypan tail.
You can take any kind/type of yarn for this particular crochet project; it is not that critical here. Use any yarn you have. The one that is nice, soft to the touch, that will make your crocheting even more enjoyable.  Knitting and crocheting are the best remedy when it comes to autumn sadness. Am I right?
