FO: Kürbis baby hat

5 Oct

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!
