Free Crochet Pattern: Pumpkin Hat

When I started this blog I had meant for it to mostly be a place to post my crochet patterns, I have since strayed away from that idea and expanded to all my crafts and some of my life. Here is a pattern I created last Halloween for my daughter. She was 9 months old at the time, the hat fit her nicely and since this pattern is made so that the hat is strechy it fits her again this October when she is 21 months old.

Pumpkin Hat

Size 12months- stretches to 3t

What you'll need:
                           Orange yarn of your choice (I used Lily n Cream Hot Orange) about 2.5oz
                           Small amount of brown yarn
                           Small amount of green yarn   
                           Hook H 5.00mm

Starting with Orange
ch. 25
row 1. DC in second chain from hook, DC across, ch 2, turn
row 2. DC in BLO across, ch 2, turn
row 3-24 repeat row 2

Now you should have a rectangle of orange. Put short ends together and crochet them together to make a tube of the Orange yarn, Fasten off and weave in ends.

Now pick one edge of the tube to be the top of the hat this will be the stem. Starting anywhere on the edge with the brown yarn

ch 2 (this counts as first DC) connecting the brown to the orange edge.
row 1. DC around sl st to the the first DC
row 2. Ch 2, DC around sl st to the first DC in row 2.
fasten off, weave in ends.

Ok this is what you should have so far:


Now you need to thread your yarn needle with some brown yarn and gather the brown part of that hat like this:

 You need to hold it like this with one hand as you sew in and out of row 1 of the brown until its secured and now has a hat shape.

Leaf:
Using Green yarn
Ch 6
row 1. sc in second chain from hook, sc across, ch 1
row 2. sc  across the bottom of the first row, continuing to sc around until you get to the begining of row 2.

fasten off, sew onto the hat on any side of the "stem"

And you are done!
