It’s been a little while since I have posted (I went on vacation and have been a little lazy since I have gotten back).
I wanted to share this super cute pumpkin hat before Fall is over!
This pattern is written for a child’s size but can easily be modified for a baby or adult size.
- Super bulky yarn (6 weight) in orange, brown, and green)
- Circular knitting needles sizes US 11 and US 13
- Darling needle
- K knit
- P purl
- K2tog knit two together
- P2tog purl two together
I will break it down into 4 sections, the hat, stem, leaves, and vine!
Note: please leave long enough tails for weaving and attaching the pieces
Start by casting on 42 stitches on your size US 11 circular knitting needles. Place marker and join in the round.

Row 2: K3 K2tog repeat
Row 3: K1 K2tog repeat

Bind off and weave in the ends
Cast on 2 stitches on your size US 11 needles
You will use the increase method knit front and back
KFB, P1, K1 For all the rows until approximately 3 inches (you will have created a triangle shape)

For the the vine you will knit an i-cord
Using your size US 11 needles cast on 3 stitches

Repeat this process until you have reached your desired length. Below is a video tutorial to help with the i-cord.
To complete the hat you just need to attach all the pieces!
