Linus's Pumpkin Patch Hat



If you love Halloween knitting patterns, you'll love this pumpkin hat! It's bright and warm and fits almost anyone. Best of all, this simple knit hat reminds us of watching "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." That's why we're calling it Linus's Pumpkin Patch Hat!

Special thanks to cami 2598747 for suggesting the adorable name for this cute cap!

I love the name! Sure takes me back to childhood memories of watching "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" every autumn. This hat is so cute, that I just HAVE to make two for my little Granddaughters! They will LOVE them!
