CH14e Patrick's Pumpkin

"Fun hat for kids or those just young at heart," smiles Bonson. Full disclosure: we made this about 10 years ago for a child we knew, and it was a great knit and the kid went nuts and wore it until teenagerhood. So we are hardly a dispassionate judge. Anyway, you start with the green spiky brim and knit the edging back and forth; join in a circle; and then complete the green band and the orange part in the round. The level of detail extends even unto short rows (fully explained) for shaping the stem, if you can believe it. Unbelievers can leave those out. Original yarn unknown, but all you have to do is find something you like in a stem green and a pumpkin colour. Second gauge given is with aran-weight yarn double-stranded. Matching mittens are available here.
