Fall Pumpkin Leaf – Free Crochet Pattern

Posted by on October 7, 2011 in Accessories, Applique | 13 comments

I had a request (thank you Robin) for a leaf to go with my Little Pumpkin Beanie pattern.  I will be adding it to the Pumpkin Hat pattern you can purchase, but I’m also offering it as a free crochet pattern on here.

Because I tried so hard to get my pumpkin stem to look ‘real’, I figured I would do the same with the leaf.  Not as easy as it sounds….at least not for me.  I didn’t want the leaf really big, seeing as many of these hats are made for infants/babies and used for photo shoots.  My first attempt I’m not going to even show you :), but here’s attempt #2.


I used ww yarn and an H hook.


sl st in 2nd ch from hook, slip stitch in next 8 ch. (stem made)

Round 1:  (sc, 2hdc, 2dc) in next ch, (dc, hdc) in next ch, 3sc in next ch, you will now be working down the back side of the leaf, (sc, hdc) in next ch, (hdc, dc) in next ch, (2dc, 2hdc, sc) in last ch, turn. 

Round 2:  ch1, 3dc in 1st st, dc in next st, hdc in each of next 3 sts, (2sc, hdc) in next st, hdc in each of next 4 sts, 3sc in next st, hdc in each of next 4 sts, (hdc, 2sc) in next st, hdc in next 3 sts, dc in next st, 3dc in last st. Fasten off.

Happy Crocheting!



  1. It looks great…makes a perfect little addition!!!
    Thanks :)

  2. The leaf will add to some nice detail to the hat.

  3. Thank you very much for this great leaf pattern. I needed a pattern for my grandaughters pumpkin beanie and this worked great!

  4. Thank you for the great pattern. I’d like to share a correction as my leaf was looking lopsided.
    Ch 13, sl st in the 2nd chain from the hook and in the next 7 sts (not 8).
    Round 1 – (sc, 2hdc, 2dc) in the first st, (dc, hdc) in the next, ADD “(hdc, sc) in the next stitch”.

    This leaves 3 worked stitches before the 3sc in the middle of the leaf, and matches the other side of the pattern.

    Thank you again for the pumpkin leaf pattern. It adds a great finalized look. :)

    • I’ll try to give it a try this way when I get a chance. Thanks for the tip!

  5. Ther is an error because i can´t . I need more spaces

    • Carmen, I know others have made it without any count issues. Did you figure it out?

  6. There is an error in the pattern. RACHELC’s correction fixes the problem. Otherwise there are not enough stitches after the stem is done to continue with the leaf.

    • I’ll recheck it again. Some don’t have any issues and others do. I’ll sit down and double check it again. Maybe I can find a way to make it work for everyone and not just some. Thanks for the feedback.

  7. I am not an expert by any means but I am having some trouble, for example: Is round 1 the three stitches left after you slip stitch in the next 8 stitches? Also, in round 1 it says you will be working down the back side of the leaf – is a turn involved? – I felt like you would say ‘turn’ if that was the case. I love this leaf for my pumpkin hat – can you please help? Thank you!

    • I’m going to try to write up a visual to help with this pattern. Hopefully I’ll have it up by tomorrow.

      • Thank you!
