I'd like to give a big thumbs up to Spud & Chloe for their yarn support that made my Pumpkin Hat possible. I was on the look-out for a pumpkin colored yarn that would have great stitch definition. Their line of worsted weight yarn called sweater gave me the gauge I was looking for, the perfect fiber blend (55% superwash wool / 45% organic cotton) and a great pumpkin color (cider: #7515). For the green stem I used color #7502 (grass).
This yarn would also work perfect for any garment that will be worn against a child's skin, as the superwash/cotton blend passes my kids' "it's not itchy" test!
