PATTERN DETAILS

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.

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at woohoopepper@hotmail.com with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
