This was such a quick and gratifying project. Too bad it is too small for Laura! But no worries — it should be the perfect size for my newborn niece, who is due in early November. I think pumpkins are acceptable until shortly after Thanksgiving I’ll make another larger hat for Laura and for her cousin Jillie. I offered to make one for Noah, but I think he’s outgrown the age of fruit-inspired hats. He thought I was a little crazy.
Pattern: Baby Pumpkin Crochet Beanie
Yarn: Vanna’s Choice in terracotta and olive (this is soooo soft for an acrylic — I really like working with it!)
Time: Less than two hours total
