One More Time
Well, I thought I had knitted my last pumpkin hat for the year until I won this book from a contest on Veronica's blog and I learned that I needed a gift for a baby to be born this month.
Pattern: Little Pumpkin from Itty-Bitty Hats
Yarn: Plymounth Encore D.K (orange) and Sirdar Snuggly (brown and green)
Needles: US 7, 16 inch circular and dpns
I really like the way the decreases are done in this pattern. Better looking than what I've used before. Next year, this is how I'll make my preemie pumpkin hats. The leaf isn't really right for a pumpkin leaf, but it's cute. The stem is garter stitch which is different too. However, the model hat in the book shows the stem in stockinette stitch. Someone didn't catch that, I guess. I'm really excited to have won this book. So many cute hats and great ideas!
