Jack-O-Lantern and the Pumpkin Patch

So, late October obviously means one thing… an obligatory trip to the pumpkin patch! And now that we have our very own little Jack-O-Lantern I thought I should knit him something special for the occasion 🙂 I found a super pattern for this pumpkin hat on Etsy. It’s knitted in aran weight yarn but I managed to create the same gauge using rialto 4 ply doubled as I found it in a very good ‘pumpkin shade’.

Little Jack seemed VERY excited about the trip as you can see 😉


Unfortunately as with any outing at the moment that involves the car and/or the pram, baby Jack slept all the way through it! At least we have photographic evidence of how cute he looked wearing his pumpkin hat and wrapped up in the log cabin patchwork my mother made for him. It’s such a good and quick little hat pattern I have knitted a few for gifts in solid colours and substituted the stalk for a pompom. I also think that with a change of colour palette this would make rather a good Christmas Pudding Hat! Poor Jack!!


The pumpkin patch is part of a garden store that has a really great farm shop.




We decided to go home with the biggest pumpkin available.


Which inevitably led to this…


Happy Halloween everyone!

  1. Is there any better excuse for cute photos at Easter/Halloween/Christmas than a baby in a hat? Although I have kittens at the moment and they come a close second 😉

  2. Little Jack looks lovely in his hat and I like his shoes too. Look forward to seeing what you have made him soon.


  3. Amy I’ve just tuned in for the first time since the summer & your new baby is beautiful. It brings back lovely memories of when my children were little. I bet you pinch yourself & can’t believe you’ve got him. Congratulations to you & hubby. I love the quilt & the hat. Your mum did a lovely job on the Shetland hap. I recognised the pattern from one I made a couple of years ago. They’re a knitters dream to knit. Enjoy your new baby & enjoy being a new mum
