There is less than a week till Halloween and I still have not carved a pumpkin. I’m wondering if all the Jack-O-Lantern hats I’ve made will count.
There are tons of pumpkin hat patterns out there, but I couldn’t find a free one that I liked enough to use so I came up with my own.
Here is my “Jack” pattern:
I hook (5.5mm)
H hook (5.0mm)
Yarn (orange, brown & green)
Toddler: (I hook)
w/ brown make a magic circle, ch 2
Rnd 1: 6 hdc in circle, join (6 hdc)
Rnd 2: ch 2, hdc in each st around, join (6 hdc)
Rnd 3-4: Repeat round 2 (6 hdc)
Rnd 5: ch 2, 2 hdc in each st around, join (12 hdc)
Rnd 6: Repeat round 5 (24 hdc)
Rnd 7: ch 2, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 2 st, rep from * around, join & tie off (32 hdc)
Join w/ orange
Rnd 8: ch 2, *2 dc in next st, dc in next 3 st, rep from * around, join (40 dc)
Rnd 9: ch 2, *2 dc in next st, dc in next 4 st, rep from * around, join (48 dc)
Rnd 10: ch 2, *2 dc in next st, dc in next 5 st, rep from * around, join (56 dc)
Rnd 11-16: ch 2, dc in each st around (56 dc)
Rnd 17: ch 1, sc in each st around, join & tie off, sew in ends (56 sc)
Vine: (H hook)
w/ green ch 30
Row 1: 2 dc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 14 ch, sl st in 2 ch, 2 dc in next 12 ch, tie off, & sew in ends
With long piece of green yarn tie a knot around the 2 sl st from row 1. Sew to bottom of stem, and sew in ends.
For face, cut nose, eyes, and mouth out of black felt and stitch to hat. You can make any kind of face you want. I opted for the pleasant and happy looking pumpkin.
If you want to add some ear flaps, add those before round 17.
