Pumpkin season is here! There are pumpkin lattes, pumpkin beer, and pumpkin bread everywhere and soon there will be trips to the pumpkin patch. So, how could I resist sharing a sweet pattern for a knit pumpkin hat? Omg, that they could wear TO the pumpkin patch! Stop. (:
Last year, I put together kits to make this hat in Spud & Chloe Sweater yarn. It’s still totally adorable and still totally makeable with yarn we have in the Home Made shop. Yes, I know I just made up a word in that last sentence. Spud & Chloe Sweater is a superwash worsted weight yarn that’ll feel great in your fingers as you knit this over a weekend or so.
But, if you crave those super-satisfying-because-they’re-super-quick knitting projects every once in a while, the Sweetie Pumpkin Pie Hat is just for you! You can find the pattern here or we’ll give you a free copy printed on card stock when you purchase the yarn for this project.
The Sweetie Pumpkin Pie Hat is knit with size US 13 needles and Spud & Chloe Outer yarn, which means big stitches and chunky yarn that you can turn into a hat in a jiffy. Like less than two hours. All Spud & Chloe yarns are super wash, so they’re really soft and ready to be thrown in the washer and dryer if need be, making them a great choice for kids’ knits.
So, come get your supplies to knit this for your little pumpkin and then grab yourself a pumpkin latte (and maybe a piece of pumpkin bread for sustenance) to settle in for a few hours with this fun project. Or you could grab a pumpkin beer if you’re feeling a little more daring. I’m sure you can handle it! (:
Spud & Chloe yarns, including Outer in Buoy and Peat colors, knitting needles, accessories and encouragement can be found right here at Home Made! If you don’t live nearby, just give us a ring and we’ll put together a mail order for you. Easy as pumpkin pie.
