Pumpkin hats

pumpkinhat._orangeJPG pumpkinhatSoon it will be darker and colder, snow and rain will fall. And it will be Halloween. Time to put some warm dressing on your cold and wet head. Maybe you or your mom can knit and make this nice hat. For an experienced knitter it will take a few hours to make. You can knit the caps on two needles. It is easy knitting this way.

Measure your head, find a cosy yarn in a bright orange or green and a bit of some lighter green. Start knitting. I have used some acrylic yarn and a pair of needles size  4. Knit the cap in tricot stitch (tricot = stockinet), pitch 88 (small child) or 96 (child) or 104 (woman)  or more stitches,. Start for the green cap with a board of alternating two purl and two knit stitches. The orange cap has an edge of a few tricot rounds. Knit after the board or edge, 5 or 6 parts in tricot, alternate this with  5 or 6 tracks of 2 purl stitches.  Decrease when the cap is long enough, some 12 cm, decrease on each edge of the tricot parts.  After a while change the color into lighter green, decrease further, and knit when reached 10 or less stitches the stem. Sew the cap together and finish the cap.
