Now, I am working on a quick video version for a small child. So stay tuned.
If you want to knit this hat you need to know hot to: cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch, knit 2 together, knit back front = increase (kbf), bind off, and crochet a chain.

about 20 (?) yards of worsted #4; I used leftover acrylic yarn, black color; few yards of worsted #4; I used leftover acrylic yarn, green color
Note: All my yarns were same thickness
- Long Knitting Needles - size #10 (6 mm)

DPN - double pointed needles
kbf - increase by knitting first into back of the stitch then immediately into the front of the same stitch
k2tog - knit two stitches together
BO - bind off
Height - 7"
Width - 18"
2" x 2" = 8 sts x 11 rows
CO 42 sts (use long knitting needles, or circular needles)
Black color yarn
Row 1 *[K1, P1]* - repeat from * to *; then move stitches on 3 DPNs (14 sts each DPN), do not twist the knit while you are connecting it into a circle, and start knitting in the round (Note: If you started on circular needles, no need to transfer stitches)
Rnd 2-6 *[K1, P1]* - repeat from * to *
Rnd 7 *[K2, kbf]* - repeat from * to * (total 56 sts)
Orange color yarn
Rnd 8-27 K56
Rnd 28 *[K2, k2tog]* - repeat from * to * (total 42 sts)
Rnd 29-30 K42
Rnd 31 *[K1, k2tog]* - repeat from * to * (total 28 sts)
Green color yarn
Rnd 32-33 K28
Rnd 34 *[k2tog]* - repeat from * to * (total 14 sts)
Rnd 35 *[k2tog]* - repeat from * to * (total 7 sts)
Rnd 36-41 K7; then BO by pulling your last stitch through all remaining stitches
Using black color yarn, crochet five chains (evenly separated around the perimeter) in a straight line starting at the black edge (your ribbing) toward the green stem (top of your hat) stopping at the green edge. Make one chain stitch every 3-4 rows so you create gathered (bunched up) effect on your hat, which will give you a pumpkin look. Please see my video how I did it. You could do this effect also with a backstitch using a yarn needle and a yarn.
