Starting Pumpkin Hats!? a post from Kelli

The Autumn season is coming~  my Cinderella pumk'in patch is doing well.  I'll post that later! 
But this time of year I have fun knitting the little treasures. 

This one I'm making for my daughters good friend's new baby boy... 

Not trying to rush summer away! Just so you know. 

It's a great free Pumpkin Hat pattern by Sarah Hood, on Ravelry in all sizes!  

The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn. 
I used dk and a size US5 and US6, because I'm knitting it for a newborn. 

 I would recommend decreasing the crown of the hat different. But the leaves do help hide the chopped up looking decrease. 

It is stink'in cute!!!
