The weather is finally starting to cool off so ,naturally, Indigo needed a pumpkin hat =). I chose Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn since it was a good weight for this time of year (bonus points for coming in the perfect pumpkin orange color!) Basic ribbing mimics the ridges on pumpkins. The stem is knitted on double point needles and the vine is made using (very basic) crochet. Enjoy the pattern!
Needles: Size 8 16 inch circular and size 8 double pointed
Yarn: Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Terracotta (1 skein), Vanna’s Choice Chocolate Brown, Vanna’s Choice Kelly Green

To make the vine:
Using a size J crochet hook, make a chain of 30 stitches. For the next row, single crochet in every other stitch. Make a knot and attach to the hat.
