Baby Pumpkin Hat: Pattern Link & Notes

This post contains affiliate links. 

I used The Stitchin Mommy's Puff Stitch Pumpkin Pattern, with a few changes of my own, of course.
The main yarns I used were Vanna's Choice in Olive and Terracotta.  I also used a little pale yellow mystery cotton yarn for the flower center and some Red Heart Super Saver in White for the flower petals.

For the main hat I followed the pattern, but did one fewer row of the puff stitch.  I thought that if I did another row it would end up a bit too long for a newborn.

I skipped the large green top in the original pattern entirely, and opted instead for an extra leaf.  I fiddled a bit with the leaf pattern.  I also added some length to the vine.

I also added a simple five petal flower.  I sewed the flower onto a button, so it is removable.  This is my go-to simple flower pattern:
  •  Magic circle.
  • 10 sc into circle.
  • Chain one, sc in same stitch, *chain one, five treble stitches in next stitch, chain one, sc in next stitch*.  Repeat between ** until there are five petals.  Slip stitch together. 

Here is the super cute Pumpkin with her hat!  (I made the cocoon for her too.)  Isn't she just precious?  Thank you to her Mommy for letting me share her cuteness with all my readers!

I love sharing my projects at various parties around the blogosphere including Hookin On Hump Day and Fine Craft Guild.
