My friend is having a baby next month and I'm constantly sending her links to things I think she should make for her newborn. When I saw her yesterday I asked her if she was going to crochet a pumpkin hat for her baby since he'll be born in Oct. She said she wouldn't have time since she already has a long list of projects she's working on. I babysat this afternoon for a bit so I took this project to work on while the kids were napping. It actually worked up really fast. This is the pattern I used. I'd never made a hat quite like this one before. If I did another one I would make some changes to the top. Also it looks really small to me. I'm used to large babies with giant heads but I suppose this might fit a normal size baby. I guess we'll just have to wait and see when her baby is born if this will fit him.
