Age- 6-9 months
Gauge  4 sts= 1 inch
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft (1 skein), Vanna’s Choice Chocolate, Vanna’s Choice Kelly Green
Needles: size US 7 knitting needles

Fold in half and sew side seam

    THANK YOU for sharing this hat! It is so adorable, and as a newbie knitter, I seriously appreciate that it's worked flat! My friends are having a baby soon so I can't wait to whip this up for their little pumpkin!

      Is possible to run through live stitches and then sew the rest?

    As one that hates to sew things together, I prefer to use four needles and knit in the round. Works just as well and just as easy to knit.
