Pumpkin Newborn Baby Crochet Hat Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Ever since I made the pumpkin and Jack-o-Lantern patterns, I felt like I had to make a pumpkin hat for a newborn. This is a very easy pattern that would look adorable on any new babies in your life for their Halloween costume or just another fall day.

Jack-o-Lantern Crochet Pattern

Hi Everyone!

It is nearing the end of October and that means it is almost time for Halloween! I haven’t been trick or treating for many years now, but giving out candy and carving pumpkins into Jack-o-Lanterns is always fun. That is why I want to share with you a Jack-o-Lantern pattern that you can crochet and don’t have to scoop out all the seeds from the centre to make a face.

If you do not have any fabric felt, you can use some black yarn and sew a face into the pumpkin. This Jack-o-Lantern pattern can be adjusted to fit what you want it to look like. Making a scary or friendly Jack-o-Lantern is up to you!
