Pumpkin Head Warmer Crochet Pattern

Welcome everyone and I am pleased to say, HAPPY FALL!  It is my absolute favorite season… I love the cool, crisp weather, the rain, wearing sweaters, boots, and of course, head warmers.  Keeping with the season and gearing up for the pumpkin patch, I decided it was time to share my crochet Pumpkin Head Warmer!

Now the pattern that I am sharing will fit a toddler (completed project measures 18 inches in circumference).  If you would like a different size, just chain until your chain measures to the size you want.  Here is a quick reference guide for sizing.

Toddler             16” – 18”
Child                  17” – 19”
Teen                  18” – 21”
Adult                 20” – 22”

Supplies Needed to Complete Project:

  • Hook G 4.00 mm
  • Yarn:  I used Red Heart Soft in Off White, Tangerine, Chocolate, and Guacamole
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape

The Pumpkin Head Warmer: Toddler Size 18 inches

Using the OFF WHITE yarn, Chain 70, join with a slip stitch (careful not to twist)

*This pattern is worked in the round

*Chains count in total stitch count.

Using the TANGERINE yarn, make a magic ring,

Round 1:  ch 2, 8 hdc in the magic ring, slip stitch into the top of ch 2 (9 total stitches)

Round 2:  ch 2, hdc in ch 2 spot, then 2 hdc in each stitch around.  Slip stitch into the top of ch 2  (18 total stitches)

Round 3:  ch 2, hdc in next 4 stitches, then place 2 hdc in next 2 stitches, then place 3 hdc in next stitch, then 2 hcd in next stitch, then 2 hdc in next stitch, then 3 hdc stitches in next stitch, then 2 hdc stitches in next stitch, then place 1 hdc in the next 4 stitches… so far you should have a total of 23 stitches.

CHANGE COLORS TO CHOCOLATE – you will be starting the stem now.

sc in next 2 stitches, ch 1 and turn

Round 4:  sc in next 3 stitches, ch 1 and turn

Round 5:  sc in next 3 stitches, cut yarn and weave in ends.

Leaf

Using the GUACAMOLE yarn, ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from the hook and the next 2 stitches.

4 sc stitches in the last chain spot, then sc in the next 3 stitches, slip stitch into the first sc. Cut yarn, making sure to leaving a long enough tail to sew the leaf to the head warmer.

Finally, all parts of the head warmer are completed!  Now it’s time to assemble it.  I put the seam in the back then placed the pumpkin on the front angled on the left side.  I used some tangerine yarn and sewed the pumpkin portion onto the head warmer.  Then I used chocolate yarn to sew the stem portion on.  Using the tail from the leaf, I sewed the leaf on, then weaved in all lose ends.  You now have an awesome Pumpkin Head Warmer for your adorable little pumpkin.  Please feel free to sell head warmers made from this pattern, but please do not sell this pattern.  I would love and appreciate a link back to this page if you do sell items made from my pattern.

As always, if you have any questions or issues with the pattern, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to help.  If you do make a head warmer, I would love for you to share it!

Cheers to Pumpkins,
Lisa
