So the days had started getting colder and the white hat was just not cutting it- way too big. I went a size smaller and made the cutest pumpkin hat for my guy. It fits snugly and will stay put, which is what we needed. I am sure by the end of November when you aren't thinking pumpkins any longer he will have outgrown it. Then it will be onto a new one. I love knitting hats as they are quick and so cute!
