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

Pattern of the Month - January

January is commonly identified with winter and winter for many of us means cold and snow. Images of snowy landscapes abound in popular culture and the stark beauty of them suggests also and calm a peaceful silence.

Buffy taught us that silence in the Buffy universe can be neither calm nor peaceful when we were introduced to the Gentlemen, January's pattern of the month. Often described as Buffy's creepiest villains ever, the Gentlemen stole away the voices of all their prospective victims before going on the hunt for hearts. Shivering as I write this I will always remember the strength of this episode as its ability to communicate without speaking. Also, the brilliant music, usually mostly going unnoticed, took a leading role.

So now, for your enjoyment, may I present the January pattern of the month, the Gentlemen!
