small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit

Pattern Description:

I'm making these as October donations to my local hospital's nursery. Each newborn gets a basket of goodies including a hand knit or crocheted hat. I have lots of leftover orange yarn (two different shades actually, but that shouldn't matter).

This knits up quickly in about 2 hours and will likely fit an infant up to about 11-12 pounds. The mobile pic (not very good, sorry) is of my 5wk old granddaughter who is 11 lbs.

Don't want a pumpkin? Leave out the purl stitches, use red yarn, and knit a tomato instead!

Need it for a larger infant? Try using Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn" 100% acrylic (very soft too) and larger needles. Follow the same pattern.

  • Height 5 inches (before leafy stem)
