These are some of the projects I’ve found that can be used to create pretty decorations for autumn/fall. They use only scraps of yarn and can be completed very quickly.

I used a mixture of video tutorial patterns and free blog patterns. Note that the free patterns are mostly on blogs with multiple affiliate links – if there is a print version its good to use that so that you can see the pattern details more easily.

Crochet pumpkins

One of my favourite designers who provides really clear and quick video tutorials is Sarah Jayne of Bella Coco, who has two great tutorials on crochet pumpkins. Slightly different designs but both very effective and very easy:

This free pattern from the blog Yarn and Chai is packed with ads but the pattern uses a different stitch and produces a pumpkin with a different look. This would look lovely in cottons and other yarns that give really good stitch definition.

Another pumpkin pattern from the blog Meg Made with Love using yet another technique useful if you want to make quite a big pumpkin… again packed with ads but the pattern section is altogether and a pdf is available for a small fee.

Falling leaves crochet patterns

This lovely free pattern for crochet oak leaves from the In the Yarn Garden blog is ad-free and well worth trying. It has a chart in UK and US crochet terms and Swedish, as well as written instructions in English.
