Free Crochet Pattern: Newborn Pumpkin Beanie Hat

(Shown in 
(left) Vanna's Choice Rust, Olive & Red Heart With Love Tan
(right) Vanna's Choice TerraCotta, Red Heart With Love Lettuce & Chocolate)


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!
