Free Crochet Patterns: Getting Ready for Fall

The past few days I have been getting a start on preparing my Etsy shop for the upcoming Fall and Halloween.  I decided to try a few new patterns I found on Ravelry and thought I would share my favorites with you.

The first pattern I tried was for this newborn pumpkin hat.  The pattern is by Danyel Pink and it was listed on FaveCrafts.com.  The hat came out just like it looked in the picture.  I only made a few little tweaks to the pattern.  I added a row of single crochets to the bottom brim of the hat just because I thought it gave the brim a more finished look.  I also added a few more rows of half double crochets to the body of the hat.  I found my yarn did not have very much give, so I needed a few extra rows.  This pattern is written for a newborn but it is very basic and could easily be modified to fit any size range.

The second pattern I tried was for this amigurumi pumpkin.  The pattern is written by June Gilbank from Planet June.  June has the best free crochet amigurumi patterns that I have found on the web.  This pumpkin came out perfectly without having to make any adjustments to the pattern.  I did however decide to use a larger crochet hook and add a few stitches to make a larger version of the pumpkin.  It also came out great.  These little pumpkins would make great fall/Halloween decorations.  I also think they would look absolutely adorable as decorations at your Thanksgiving dinner table.

I have several additional patterns I hope to try this next week as well as a few ideas for new patterns of my own.  Stay tuned 🙂
