The Pumpkin Spice crochet Beanie is a beautiful beanie worked in a bulky weight yarn. It’s so cozy!
I am not going to lie, this time of year I have Pumpkin Spice on my mind! From pumpkin spice muffins and pie to lattes, it is the flavour of the season.
After I finished working this beanie I couldn’t help but see pumpkin spice all over it!

About the Pumpkin Spice Beanie
This crochet beanie is worked from the bottom up. The brim of the hat is worked in rows, while the body of the hat is worked in rounds.
The hat is comprised of puff stitches, half double crochet and single crochet stitches.
You may attach a pompom to the top of the hat or wear it without! Both options look great! Stay tuned – nest week I will upload a pattern for a matching cowl!
