Tighten the stitches and sew the hole closed. Leave a long tail of yarn, which you will use to define the pumpkin’s ridges. Thread the tail through the needle and pass it to the bottom of the pumpkin. Insert the needle from the bottom to the top and pull the yarn tightly. Repeat on the opposite side. Now the pumpkin has been divided into two sections. Repeat the previous step to divide one section into two, creating four ridges in total. Now, divide each of the four sections in the same manner, resulting in eight ridges.
