baby pumpkin hat

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning. The air is getting cooler. And everything at the grocery store is suddenly pumpkin flavored. To make sure that your kid can blend in with the season, you’ll want this pumpkin hat. It’s super-quick and easy, so as long as you’ve got some yarn, you can have it ready in no time. And we’ve got two sizes: 6-12 months and toddler.  That means he or she can be a pumpkin head for years to come!
