A Cozy Hat for your Littlest Pumpkin

I couldn’t resist this quick little side project. After all, doesn’t every baby need a little pumpkin hat? Admittedly, I think I made it a bit too large, but I wanted to be sure that it lasted Baby E through both Halloween and Thanksgiving. The pattern is a free download on Ravelry. I used Red Heart Soft worsted weight yarn and needles as per the pattern. In retrospect, I wish I had used a yarn with a little bit more of a natural “heathering” to it, (I’m thinking that would’vet looked a bit more “vintage, weathered pumpkin”). I think the creator Michele Sabatier did a great job with her yarn selection. Check out the pattern and her Ravelry page for further inspiration! This is a great quick knit, just about 1 weeks worth of Baby E nap time and late night TV multitasking… (So probably 3 hours for an average knitter if they were actually focusing).
