Free Crochet Pattern: 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
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.
Using Green yarn
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!
