Pattern: Kürbis baby hat
Yarn: Vanna’s choice in Tangerine and Kelly Green
Needles: US 5 and 6
Notes: I’m not much of one for knitting baby items, but I do have a baby niece – and what kind of a knitter aunt would I be if I didn’t make her something? Besides, this hat is adorable! The pattern was easy to follow. I only made one alteration – knitting the stem on 3 stitches rather than 4, because my yarn was slightly thinner than called for in the pattern. I knitted it tightly, and the size seems ok. It only took a few hours. The yarn was alright for an acrylic – not as scratchy as red heart, but less floppy than simply soft. I like that it comes in some nice muted colors. I’d use it again for something like this, though not for anything larger I don’t think.
Halloween is almost here – ah, my favorite holiday!
