 Oh no NOT another little newborn crochet pumpkin hat pattern I hear you say But let me explain This pumpkin hat pattern was originally published in a very old online publishing site I was a member of. 

Anyway Someone sent me a message with the original photo (2012) the other day asking for the patterns For the little pumpkin crochet hat, and pumpkin booties. 
Pumpkin hat and booties crochet
I mean they are cute, But even I can see the Patterns need some  updating 

I had just started my crocheting journey as a beginner.  and although I could crochet the items I was not at the stage of writing down the patterns for them. I think this little set shows my growth over the years, I was always able to crochet things if asked, but lacked the skill of writing them 

Size of This Pumpkin Hat to fit NEWBORN. (I will add in several child sizes to let you make the hat for a child too) You may need to click on the picture below to view the sizes chart for crochet hats

TO crochet the pumpkin hat you will need a tape measure 

You will chain the LENGTH of the HAT HEIGHT required (see chart above to see your hat circumference = chain length to start. remember to ADD on MORE chain stitches IF you want a turn-up)

The yarn I USED for This Pumpkin Hat: Double KNIT - orange(2 strands held together) Double knit Yarn GREEN 

The crochet HOOK size I used for the pumpkin hat: is 6.00mm 

Please note I am an extremely loose crocheter you may need to adjust the hook size, (or use the measurements provided to ensure your crochet pumpkin hat will FIT.)

hdc - Half Double Crochet 

BLp - Back Loops of the stitch. 


Hat circumference = 12”            

Hat Height =       5”      

Hat Width =    3.75”

NOTES: I wanted a large turn-up on the hat so I have made the chain LONGER  than the length of the hat required. (I literally kept making a chain and folding up the bottom to see how it looked.

If wanting a FOLD UP brim please ensure you add in sufficient chains at the start to incorporate the fold up into the starting chains

 (Then remember to adjust accordingly how many green stitches and how many orange stitches you would like if you are making it bigger) For newborns, I wanted 5 sts in green. 

When you turn your hat and change colors make sure all pieces of yarn are all kept on the backside.
