Crochet Pumpkin Hat Gauge

Gauge is very important for this free crochet hat pattern.

15 dc= 4″ and 10 rows= 4″

Crochet the first five rounds of the the 0-3 Months size hat. It should measure close to 4.5″ across the middle.

If your swatch is larger than 4.5 inches, your gauge is looser than mine. Try using a smaller crochet hook.

If your swatch is smaller than 4.5 inches, your gauge is tighter than mine. Try using a larger crochet hook.

Crochet Pattern Notes

  • This crochet beanie pattern starts with a magic circle.
  • The beginning of each round starts with a chain. This chain does not count as your first stitch. 
  • At the end of each round, you’ll join your yarn with a slip stitch (sl st) to the first stitch made in that round. 
  • Repeat instructions between asterisks (*) for the remainder of the round.
  • You are crocheting in the round.
  • Crochet pumpkin hat is worked from the top down.
  • If needed, you can make any size hat longer or shorter by repeating or eliminating the last row.
