Thick and Toasty Pumpkin Patch Beanie

This beanie is made using Loops and Thread Charisma tweed yarn in White, Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in Pumpkin, and Red Heart Soft Essentials in Cocoa.

Celebrate FALL and brighten up someone’s day with this cute and cozy beanie! Pumpkins are made using Granny stitches and stems with half double crochet stitches. The length of the beanie can be adjusted to create a slouch effect, if desired. I get my pompoms from Amazon.com!

Stitches used:

ch- chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

hdc – half double crochet

granny stitch – 3 double crochet in the same space

sk st – skip stitch 

sl st – slip stitch

st – stitch

YO – yarn over

Starting with WHITE, Ch 4 and loop to make a magic ring. String the pompom through the yarn along the way.
