Little Pumpkin and Yoda Baby Hat

I have made this type of hat quite a few times before - it is probably my favourite design for a young baby. The Little Pumpkin Hat just looks adorable on any baby.

This one was made from some worsted weight alpaca from my stash and scraps of wool for the leaf and stalk. I knitted the size 3-6 months but apparently it fits the newborn baby fine. It should last for a few months as you can unroll the brim a bit to make it larger. The pattern I used was Pumpkin Hats by Sarah Hood which is a free download from Ravelry. Highly recommended!
Also for my colleagues new baby boy...

... the equally adorable Yoda Hat which is also available through Ravelry. I purchased a couple of skeins of Berroco Abode at Loop last year and this was the perfect project for it.  The parents are big fans of Star Wars and were well pleased with this supercute topper.
Expect another update soon as there are a lot more finished and half finished projects waiting to be photographed and featured on this blog.  It has been a very productive summer!
