I finally got around to writing down the instructions to my favorite hat. As seen on Oliver several years ago:

My gosh he was so cute!!

I still make several of these each year — some to gift, some to sell.

Sometimes I add ribs, or leaves, or a curly stem. They make really cute baby gifts. They even cuter on little kindergartners in a pumpkin patch (see above). They are quick and very easy to make. Even Margaux has knit one of them!

Since I think there need to be more little pumpkin-headed kids out there, I am sharing my pattern with the world. So, here you go — my pattern. Knit & enjoy and let me know if you make one.

Here is the link to the Ravelry pattern page.
