Lil' Pumpkin Hat

I've made a new hat and I'm loving it.  Actually, there are very few hats that I make that I don't love.  That's why I get the pattern in the first place.  You can purchase the pattern here on Etsy.  This shop is great!  I get a lot of my patterns for hats and booties here.  Tara's patterns are super easy to follow and she has sales quite regularly.  I have also been a pattern tester for her.  When you are a pattern tester, you get the pattern for free!  Holla!  She calls for pattern testers on Facebook but you have to be fast.  Her Facebook page is Mamachee*crochet makes me happy.  Also, check out her website here.  She has free patterns and tutorials on her site.

Anyway, on to the hat at hand.  This pattern was a little different in that it had the stem to work with on top.  It took me a couple of times to get my counting right but I got it.  After that it was smooth sailing and worked up very quickly.  I made it while Benj was watching a couple of shows.  I opted not to put the little patches on this one.  I can still add them if I choose, so we'll see.  It does seem a little on the bigger side but I'm not always a good judge of sizing and I didn't have a baby around to try it on.  If you want one of these cute hats for your lil' pumpkin but don't know how to crochet, I will gladly make you one for $15.  I can make any size from newborn up to adults.  Leave a comment if you are interested and a way to get a hold of you if I don't have your contact info.
