    Maybe I’m just not seeing it but I don’t see where it tells you when to use what color. I’d like to try these!


  2. Laura:
    Thank you for your interest in this pattern.
    The yarn is listed in supplies, but any worsted wt. yarn in an orange and a small amount of green will work.

    Hi Carol!! I am currently attempting to crochet your pumpkin hat from the pattern I got on ravelry… I’m stuck!! I’m trying to do the medium size hat. So, I got to round 10, did it, ten skipped to round 13 like it says to do for medium size. Then, after finishing round 13, I see that round 14-23 says to repeat alternating round 12 and 13. So, for medium, I should really repeat alternating 10 and 13? I just can’t get it right. I’m mostly a beginner crocheter, but I’ve done some other beanies and baby pods. I’m just not quite good enough to not have a pattern and still make things. Anyways, if you could tell me where I’m going wrong or where to go after round 13, I’d so appreciate it!!! Thanks and I love your work!!!

  4. Rnds. 14-23: repeat alternating rnds. 12 and 13, (12 and 10, 12 and 9) do not turn at end of rnd. 23. 66 (60, 54) st
    My sincere apolgies……my error, I didn’t include the changes for small and med. Thanks so much for the heads up!
