Pumpkin Hat Knitting Pattern- get your little one harvest-ready with this festive hat!
We're in total fall mode over here....apple picking, baking and decorating the house. There are some great pumpkin patches in the area, complete with elaborate playgrounds and games. We end up going several times. Naturally, a pumpkin hat for Indigo was in order! I love knitting seasonal hats for him.
This Pumpkin Hat Knitting Pattern uses a wide rib knit to mimic the ridges on a pumpkin. The stem is created by using double point needles on the last handful of stitches. The vines are crocheted separately and knotted on.
This hat is so cute for family pictures and to wear on fall activities!
