Linus's Pumpkin Patch Hat


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!

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!

I would like to name it Pumpkin Chiffon Knitted Hat. It looks so soft and warm.

Has to be the Punkin Head Hat.

1. "carrot top" 2. "it's the great pumpkin, charlie brown" That is one adorable little boy who is wearing that hat!

How about "Linus's Pumpkin Patch Hat" for the name of the hat?

I would call it Pumpkin Patch

I'd call it Orangie Gourdie...
