    Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! I’ve been on a total watermelon kick lately and I wanted to share this new Watermelon Hat Knitting Pattern with you. This Watermelon hat is perfect for summer babies.
I kept the design a basic beanie which makes this a fast knit. The “seeds” are stitched on after the hat is complete. I hope you guys like the pattern- happy knitting!

Yarn: Simply Soft Yarn in Harvest Red, Simply Solids in Kelly Green, Simply Soft in White, small scrap of black yarn
Needles: Size US 9 Circular, 16 inch
