Loom Knit Pumpkin Hat
For a long time now, I've seen a lot of these pumpkin hats, and I've always wanted to make one. Well, today, while baking my sister's birthday cake, I finally made my very first one!!! I loom knit the hat itself using two strands of worsted weight orange yarn held together. The stem and leaves were crocheted.
Hat Recipe-Preemie/Small Newborn Size.
You will need:
- A 24 peg round loom, and the awl it comes with.
- Yarn needle
- Small amount of worsted weight orange and green yarns
- Crochet hook (size isn't too critical- you just want something that will work with a worsted weight yarn)
Loom knit 20 rows using two strands of orange yarn held together, and then cast off using the gathering method (run the yarn needle under each stitch, and then pull each stitch off the peg). Tie tightly and weave in ends.
For the stem, crochet about5 chain stitches. Single crochet till end, and then single crochet around the other side of the same chain. Weave in ends. Attach to top of hat.
For the leaves: Ch 6. Work each stitch as follows: SC in first stitch, then HDC, DC, HDC, SC. Repeat the stitch pattern working on the opposite side of the same chain. Repeat for additional leaves as desired. Attach to top of hat near base of stem.
