Free Crochet Pattern: Newborn Pumpkin Beanie Hat

(Shown in

While creating the Ribbed Beanie or Newsboy Hat I realized the same hat could easily be used to make a cute little pumpkin hat and since Fall is nearly here why not share right away! I've re-written the pattern below for the hat so you don't have to pop over to the other pattern for it and added the easy patterns for the stem, leaf & curly vine. These are very simple additions and the entire hat can be completed within an hour. 

Please feel free to share pictures of your finished projects, you can add the photos to a project on Ravelry or upload them to my Facebook page here: facebook.com/byjennidesigns I love to see your finished work!

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Fall!

  1. Do you have this pattern in larger sizes? Like 3-6 and 6-9 months?

    1. I made it for my 9 mo old son. I used multiples of 12 instead of 11 and kept increasing in row 5 instead of stopping the increases at row 4, so I was working mostly with rows of 72 stitches total instead of 44. His head circumference was measured to be 18.5 (90th percentile) at his check up yesterday, though, if that helps. good luck!

    1. You should either use a magic ring OR a chain of 3 joined. The magic ring is the preferable choice though because you can close the opening tighter.
