Pumpkin Hat

Pumpkin Hat

I knit this for my sweet little nephew to wear this fall.


I used metal DPNs and Caron Simply Soft in orange. The leaf is green cashemere and another green yarn I recycled from sweaters. The Simply Soft I got at Hobby Lobby


I made a rolled brimmed hat for a 1 yr old--I "think" 70 stitches. I made a wide rib K6 P3 and just knit til it looked about right. I decreased evenly across the hat and when there were 6 stitches left, I switched to brown for the pumpkin stem and knit for about 1".

No problems--just trying to figure out the sizing without a pattern.

It took me about 1 week in my spare time.

I love knitting and I love that I have a baby in the family to knit for!

This entry made me realize that I could do an apple hat the same way, just with red or green yarn! I can't wait!
