Crochet Pumpkin Hat Pattern and GIVEAWAY!


Here is a plain and simple pumpkin hat, perfect for fall or a halloween costume! I will begin with my own pattern but the bulk of the hat is a pattern I followed from Easy Makes Me Happy. The pattern comes in newborn to adult sizes!

I used Vanna's Choice yarn in Fern and Terracotta colors.


For smaller sizes (0-6 months):

With green yarn...
Magic Ring, 6 SC in ring
Working in continuous rounds...
Round 2-4: SC around (6 SC)
Round 5: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next two, repeat around, join, chain 2 ( 8 SC)
Round 6: 2 HDC in each around, change color to orange, chain 2,  and continue following the pattern for the Free Crochet Monkey Hat by Easy Makes Me Happy beginning with Round 2. (Leave off earflap, tails and monkey ears!)



Leaf Pattern is also by Easy Makes Me Happy

Pumpkin Coil: Chain 12, 2 SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down, fasten off and tie on by stem.



For larger sizes (12 months +)


With green yarn...
Magic Ring, 8 SC in ring
Working in continuous rounds...
Round 2-5: SC around (8 SC)
Round 6: 2 HDC in each around, join chain 2, (16 HDC)
Round 7: HDC in first stitch, 2 HDC in next, repeat around (24 HDC), change color to orange, chain 2 and continue following the pattern for the Free Crochet Monkey Hat by Easy Makes Me Happy beginning with Round 4. (Leave off earflap, tails and monkey ears!)



Leaf Pattern is also by Easy Makes Me Happy (use a large hook for larger leaves... I used size I hook)

Pumpkin Coil: Chain 17, 2 SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down, fasten off and tie on by stem.

  5. Is there an alternative to the magic circle? Every time I attempt it, it seems to get all messed up!
