Ravelry Members Download a free PDF of this pattern here: Newborn Side-to-Side Hat

This is a pumpkin version of my Basic Newborn Side-to-Side Hat. I also have a Striped Version with a decorative top.

2 oz. orange soft worsted weight yarn, scraps of green yarn
Size H crochet hook
Tapestry Needle

Using orange yarn, follow directions for the Basic Newborn Side-to-Side Hat. To make the curly vines and stem, see directions below.

Curling Vines (make 2) Using green yarn, chain 10. SC in first chain from hook. 2 SC in each chain to the end. Bind off and tie tails together in a small knot. ((picture 1))

Stem (make 1) Using green yarn and leaving a 6" tail, chain 10. DC in 3rd chain from hook. HDC in the next 3 chains. SC in last 4 chains. Chain 1, turn. Sc in each SC, HDC in each HDC, DC in each DC. Bind off.((picture 2))

Fold stem in half lengthwise. Using the 6" tail (which should be at the top, where the SC's are), whipstitch together the sides of the stem. ((picture 3)) Tie tails in a small knot at the bottom of the stem.

Attach one curling vine to each side of the stem. Using a tapestry needle, pull the tails of the curling vines up through the stem and out the top. ((picture 4))

Pull tight and trim. This will hide the ends *and* will give the stem a little thickness. Attach completed stem ((picture 5)) to the top of the hat. Weave in ends.
