Knitting: Brimmed Hat
One set of instructions; two gauges, with two different yarn / needle combinations, give us the two different hat sizes - newborn & infant. You’ll only need one needle size per hat. (Although, if you’d like to add the optional ties, I recommend 2 dpns in a size or two smaller than your hat needle.)
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Yarn available through the designer here. You’ll want 3 different-colored, 50g balls.
Knitting: Decorative - Other
It is not crucial that you get exactly my gauge for this project. But, remember – tight gauges are best for avoiding any stuffing leaks. What matters most is that you’re happy with your fabric and that you keep your gauge consistent across multiple eggs, especially if you plan to β€œPut all of your eggs in one basket!”
Knitting: Beanie, Toque

Knitting: Mittens
Although they knit up quick as a blink, the details are in all the right places for careful shaping to fit an average female adult hand perfectly. Made with only one hank of Rasta. (At the 3 sts/inch gauge, I had about 5 feet of yarn left over from my one 150g / 90 yard hank.) Made with two 100g balls of Dale Garn Hubro.

I made this way back in 2003 for my youngest boy, pictured, who is now a big eleven year old. (He still likes to squeeze into it, come October, LOL!) Someone just requested it, so I’m putting it into PDF format now. There’s also a kit for it on my Kidsknits site, http://kidsknits.com/pumpkinkit.html
