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 2017, Buffy 20th and 25th Anniversary:

Pattern of the Month - May

Yes, it's May already. Spring is in full swing. Flowers are blooming and leaves are budding. We're also half way to Halloween. Really!

By May, Spring is not as fresh as it was in April, but everything still seems new. This brings us to our Buffy pattern of the month, Principal Snyder. He replaced the Principal Flutie, first principal of Sunnydale High, but he was hardly a breath of fresh air. Quite the opposite, in fact. Snyder seemed to have more knowledge about the real workings of Sunnydale than most other people and, in fact, you were often left wondering how much he really knew. Plus, he definitely was not on the Slayer's side. When he was eaten by the Mayor snake, I don't think anyone cried.
