How adorable! Who's the darling model?

Your stitches are so even and perfect. If I didn't know better I'd think you'd been knitting all your life!

Wow! That is so cute! Who is the baby? I agree with Styyna, you are as talented a knitter as you are a crocheter (is there such a word?).Thank you for sharing. Just another thing: where did you get the pattern?

Thank you, Milla & Styyna.  I had to re-do and/or cover-up many mistakes!  But I think I'm learning from my errors as I go along.  This was my second attempt.  My first pumpkin hat came out too small, so i gave it to a friend with a new grandchild.
 This little one is my nephew's first baby & my brother's first grandchild.  Which makes her my Grand-niece, I think?!  She is about 6 months old.   I have approval to post her photo, but will probably be taking down eventually.

The pattern is free.  Here is a link:

I enjoy making the baby hats.  They satisfy my need for a quick project.  A great alternative for when I tire of working on DS's Dr. Who scarf!
