I designed and created this cute little pumpkin hat from just a basic hat pattern and added the scallop trim, leaves and corkscrew top for the stem.
I bought the yarn at Mardins at a bargain price for sure. Each skein was only a $1.00. I only used maybe a quarter of the orange yarn and a very little of the green. So can you do the math, I would say this hat did not cost me more than 0.35 cents to make this hat.
Form a Magic Loop, Ch 1 this does not count as a sc
Round 1 - You will work 12 Dc in ring. Sl St to join - 12 Dc
Join with a Sl st to first sc - you will do this for each round

Round 2 - Ch 1, work 2 DC in each St around -  24 Dc

Round 3 - Ch 1, Dc in first St, 2 Dc in next St around - 36 Dc

Round 4 - Ch 1, Dc in first 2 Sts, 2 Dc in next St around - 48 Dc

Row 5-9: Ch 1, Dc in each St around - 48 Dc
You will now work with the green
Round 10 - join green and ch 1, sc in each St around.

Round 11 -  Ch 1, Sc in same St, *skip next sc, 5 sc in next stitch*, repeat between* to last St, 4 sc in last St, join to first sc, finish off.
Leaves (make 2)
With green Ch 10
sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next st, db in next st, Trb in next 3 st's, dc in next st, hdc in next st, sc in last sticth, finish off.
Corkscrew Stem
Ch 12
3 sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. The corkscrew will start to form.
Assemble your hat!!
