Pumpkin Hat

My first baby knit project, I made this hat a few weeks ago for my friend Tara's baby, Vincent. I used a pattern I found on the internet and it knit up really quickly. Definitely a quick satisfaction type of project.

Pumpkin hat - in progress

It looks so teeny tiny, but it stretches really nicely.

Overhead view. I love the texture that the purl columns created - how the knit columns balloon out like a real pumpkin.

I found this strangely vague "Eco" cotton/acrylic blend yarn at Walmart. There's no company name on it and no info backing up its eco claim. But I liked knitting with it and it came in decent colours. I bought organge, red and a pink/olive mix.
