Pumpkin Hat

A friend of mine is newly pregnant and I wanted to make her a little something to celebrate but she doesn't know yet whether the baby is a boy or girl. I don't like "unisex" presents so I decided a pumpkin hat was in order and good timing since the baby is due in August. He / she will be ready for a Halloween hat in no time!

There are many free pumpkin hat patterns out there but I used the one from Itty-Bitty Hats by Susan Anderson (awesome book; I highly recommend it). Lion Brand CottonEase for the yarn (of course!); the orange is the old version and the green and taupe are the new version. More details at Ravelry if you're interested.

I got this book for my sister. We couldn't decide whether it was the hats that were so cute, or the babies that were so adorable that made them look so cute!

Love your pumpkin hat!

Aww! How adorable. I call my kids "pumpkin" all the time and now you've done it literally.
