Pumpkin Jack Welcomes You!

Pumpkin Jack is all about carving pumpkins. I have patterns, instructions, anecdotes, carving galleries and even Halloween stories. Come in and stay a while. Please return often.

The majority of the patterns on this site are quiet complex and require hours of time to complete. If you find them to be intimidating or, perhaps, you would like a little practice first before tackling them, you might wish to attempt some more traditional patterns here, some Halloween images here or my extensive collection of smiley face patterns here.

Number of patterns so far: 1457.5

What's The Latest?

Here are the patterns for Halloween 2016, Prime Ministers:

Pattern of the Month - November

Halloween is over for another year and it is time to begin the long countdown once more. Next year's theme is Prime Ministers of Canada in anticipation of 2017's sesquicentenniel. Normally we at Pumpkinjack we would not begin a theme's patterns of the month until January, but, given the number of patterns for this theme (as of October 2015 federal election, there have been 23 prime ministers), we will begin now.

For the first prime ministerial pattern of the month, we will begin at the beginning with Sir John A MacDonald. Sir John A is the man credited with building our physically larger and diverse nation. He was also the only prime minister to win six majority governments.

November is also the month containing Remembrance Day, the day on which we remember and pay tribute to those who laid their lives on the line to protect us. Please take a moment on November 11th at 11AM to pause in silence.
