Pumpkin Beanie - Free Pattern

Just in time for Halloween and Thanksgiving, make yourself a pumpkin beanie!

Worsted Weight Yarn
Size H Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle

Pattern Notes:
The pattern for the beanie is worked in rows and then stitched together at the ends and tied together at the top. WORK IN BACK LOOP ONLY
The green stem is made in the round, in both loops.

 4 rows and 9 sts make 2" square

Pattern(Newborn size only):
In Orange
Ch 32
Row 1: (Working in back loop only) Sc in 2nd ch from hk, sc in next 4 sts, then hdc across.
Row 2: ch 2, turn. Hdc in each hdc, sc in each sc.
Row 3: ch 1, turn. sc in each sc, hdc in each hdc.

Repeat rows 2-3 until you have 28 rows total. Then stitch row 1 to row 28. Gather at the top (the sc end) with orange yarn. It should gather really nicely because of the single crochets.
