There are a lot of websites out there that will give you free patterns to download and print off for pumpkin carving.
Pumpkin Masters is one such website. They also have some great tips for carving your pumpkins.
Favorite Dog Breed stencils has some free designs of your favorite pooch. If your like me and love dogs this one is really a treat. Who says pumpkins have to be scary?
Also, if you have a favorite picture you'd like to turn into a stencil you can use Photoshop (Or Gimp). Here are Photoshop directions. Here are Gimp Directions (PDF)
But getting back to the question, my favorite design is one that comes from my child's imagination. :) No stencils needed. Just carving tools and a plan to have fun.
