Wear a Pumpkin?

Posted by Caroline Hershey


 What could be cuter than a pumpkin hat on a child? Tis the time of year not only to eat them but wear them too. You can find this as a free pattern on Lion Brand . I used Cascade 220 and odds and ends for leaves and stem. If you would like for me to put a kit together for you, just email.

Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins! Our favoritis breakfast recipe this time of year is a pumpkin coffee cake. Try it out!
