Safe and Secure Pumpkin Hat

Safe and Secure Pumpkin Hat

This Safe and Secure Pumpkin Hat will be a blessing for your child's homemade Halloween costume. The yarn used to make this crochet hat is reflective, meaning your kid can walk the streets in it and still be seen by cars and people with flashlights. This way, if they run off from you while trick-or-treating, get lost, or are just in a darker park of the neighborhood, you can still make sure they are safe on Halloween night. You want this holiday to be a lot of fun, but now you can keep it safe too with this fun Halloween crochet pattern.

Notes

Special Stitches Fpdc (Front post double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice (1 loop remains on hook). Fphdc (Front post half double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around post of indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 3 loops (1 loop remains on hook). Notes 1. Hat is easy to make once you get started and become comfortable making the post stitches (Fpdc and Fphdc). 2. Hat is worked in joined rounds beginning with the Stem at the top of the Hat. 3. Stem is worked with A and remainder of Hat is worked with B. 4. Post stitches (Fpdc and Fphdc) are worked to create the grooves in the Stem and Pumpkin.
