Pumpkin Hat Crochet Pattern

I have been working with the very talented Savanna, from SavannaSmiles Photography and she asked me if I’d be willing to make her a pumpkin hat.  I’ll be honest, I hesitated for a moment.  Not because I didn’t want to, but because there are tons of pumpkin hats already out there and, for most of you that know me, you’ll notice I don’t make something just because it’s popular at the moment.  I made a decision, at the beginning of this journey, to have my own style….find my “niche” so to speak.

So, I decided I’d make her one, but I wanted to be careful it wouldn’t look like anyone elses. There have been times where I can look at a picture and create that item (or come pretty close) without a pattern.  I would never want to try to sell something like that as my own, so I wanted to be sure it had my own ‘flare’ to it.  Even after it was made I went back online to make sure it didn’t look like anyone else’s and I had hubby help me check :).
