Pumpkin Hat

Get ready for the Autumn season with this adorable pumpkin hat.

Crocheted sideways to get that squishy ribbed look and with a deep turn-up, your little one will be snuggly warm in the mists and mellow fruitfulness.

The pattern was written and tested using Stylecraft Special DK but any DK would do. Do make a tension swatch and adjust your hook if necessary.

Thank you for choosing the Pumpkin Hat pattern and I hope the baby who gets this will enjoy wearing it. If you have any questions or comments they are welcome.

I’d love to see your finished hats! Do share your photos with me on Instagram @grannylawlorcrafts and use #pumpkinhat
