Fall time is a great time to welcome new babies into the world. I, myself, had a fall baby the first time... and I would have LOVED to have a pumpkin hat for him!! Halloween babies are so blasted fun!!
This year, I have been feeling like I want to give back to some of the babies out there. So I put together this newborn pumpkin hat pattern for a great idea for a baby gift. After all, who doesn't want a crochet baby hat these days?
So here it is, enjoy!
