The Knit Pumpkin Hat: Celebrate Halloween in Cozy Style
This pattern for a knit pumpkin hat has serious Halloween appeal. It s a nod to a holiday that celebrates all things creative, so there s no better time to put your needlework skills to use. Made with soft DMC Woolly yarn, we love this knit hat because it s suitable for all ages. It s also the perfect accessory for the parent or grandparent looking for a more subtle costume to wear while taking the kids trick or treating. Better yet, knit a few of them and you can create your very own pumpkin posse. There s also no rule that says you can t wear this cutie accessory all winter long (that stem would put a smile on anyone s face), so pull out your knitting needles and get your pumpkin on!
