Who doesn’t need a pumpkin beanie hat complete with stalk and leaf? It’s an absolute must have whatever age you are. Easy to make, the perfect gift and a great little project for post stitch practise.

This cute little number comes in four sizes from baby to adult and is super simple to add rounds to so that it’s the perfect fit. It’s made from the top down and uses front post stitches to add texture.

I made this for my little boy last year and have the next size on my hook ready for him this year too. What else do you need for an October halloween treat?!
