I was going to try to explain a pattern for pumpkins I had made in the past.  You can make them any size you wish just by adding a few additional stitches.  Hoever I just found this link:  http://www.planetjune.com/blog/free-crochet-patterns/pumpkin/
With a little tweaking you can adjust this bigger or smaller.

I have some Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in a really nice rusty orange color. Since it's a bulky yarn, it works up quickly. To make a pumpkin that's just a big ball shape (rather than a "lobed" pumpkin), you can work in spiral rounds. If you follow my blog tutorial for increasing evenly, you can make a ball pretty easily. See http://amygurumi.com/2009/04/tutorial-increasing-evenly/

Once you reach the desired size, work even for several rows then decrease evenly & finish off. Let me know how it goes. I can also post a more formal pattern for you with a stem and/or leaf if you're interested.

Cheers,
Amy

Follow-up: I was inspired by your post and wrote a free pattern for a pumpkin. It's on my blog http://amygurumi.com/2009/09/free-pattern-pumpkin/



AmyGurumi Pumpkin

Rnd 1 – Work 6 sc into magic ring or chain start. Pull ring closed
Rnd 2-8 – Increase evenly to 48 sts.
Rnd 9-14 – Work even (48 sts).
Rnd 15-21 – Decrease evenly to 6 sts; work in ends and begin stuffing when you have 18 sts left. Fasten off leaving long tail. Use tail to catch the front loop of each stitch and pull the remaining circle closed.
Stem

Rnd 1 – Work 4 sc into magic ring or chain start. Pull ring closed.
Rnd 2 – Work 2 sc into each st around (8 sts).
Rnd 3-7 – Work even (8 sts).
Rnd 8 – [Sc into next st; ch 5; sc in each ch; sl st] repeat around. To make fewer points around, sl st instead. You can also vary the number of chains to create a more uneven, “natural” look.
Vine

Ch 20. Sl st in each ch; fasten off.

I used super bulky yarn and worked it in spiral rounds. More details/suggestions on my blog. It's really quick & easy.

Hope this helps!
