Baby Crochet Hunter Hat

It's October. The leaves are falling. Autumn is full swing. The smell of pumpkin spice is in the air. My favorite time of year. I thought I would go along with the season by working on a sweet baby pumpkin hat.

I completed the orange portion of the hat, which had a nice ribbed effect. Unfortunately, before I could even think about starting on the green stem part, my almost two year old daughter decided to claim the hat for her baby doll (pictured). I admit that it does look so adorable. Every time the hat comes off baby doll, the stinker butt is trying to shove it back on. She isn't giving it up without a fight. She is a stubborn little toddler (I'm pretty sure she gets that from her father :) ). There is just no sense in arguing with her. Besides you cannot argue with a toddler anyways.

I guess my little pumpkin hat will have to settle for being a little baby hunter hat instead. Thankfully, that fits right in with my hunter-gatherer type family.


Size: 
Baby 1-3 month old.

Material:
(Notice: Affiliate links are used below)
- Crochet Hook, Size H, 5.0 mm
Yarn Red Heart Pumpkin Medium worsted yarn


Abbreviations:
ch: chain
bphdc: back post half double stitch
hdc: half double crochet
sc: single crochet
sl: slip stitch

Instructions:

Starting chain Ch 38
Row 1: HDC in 3 ch from hook. HDC in the next 30 CH. SC in last 5 CH. CH 1 and turn.
Row 2: SC in first 5 stitches. BPHDC in the next 29 HDC. SC in last stitch. CH 2 and turn.
Row 3: BPHDC into the next 29 BPHDC. SC in the last 5 SC. CH 1 and turn.

Keep repeating rows 2 and 3 until desired length is reached, which should be 13 inches. End with row 2.

Finishing: SL the two edges together to create a continuous piece. Before tying off, cut the yarn long enough to use a yarn needle to weave through the SC at the top to close off the top. After weaving the yarn through the SC, pull the yarn to close the opening and tie off. Weave in all ends.

Happy hookin' and a stitchin'!
