The best way for me to find more happiness in my life is by sharing more with others. So I’d like to celebrate the one year anniversary of Punkin’ Hat by making it free with the code: kindness

It has a curly leaf on top modeled after a genuine pumpkin patch leaf!

Brisk winds, shorter days and leaves changing colors bring about an undeniable urge to dress babies up as food. At least for me anyway… Introducing a simple ribbed beanie with garter stitch ruffled leaves, curling i-cord decorations and a stem on top for your own little punkin’ to wear this Autumn.

This pattern has been tech-edited and test knit.

Worsted-weight yarn and a simple pattern means this hat works up very quickly. The decorative garter stitch leaf and curly i-cord work up with just a little bit of spare yarn. You can also mix up stem and leaf colors!
