Sweetie Pumpkin Pie

What a little pumpkin!

Halloween and the season of Jack o’ Lanterns may be past, but it’s still pumpkin season in my book. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin soup, and, of course… pumpkin pie! And what could be better than sharing these seasonal treats with the little, lovable pumpkin in your life? What’s life without a sweetie-pie?

With first trips to the pumpkin patch, first bites of turkey, sweet potatoes, and cranberry sauce, very first Thanksgiving festivities are certainly something to make anyone thankful.

Celebrate with a new, free hat pattern to keep your little pumpkin cozy! A quick knit to make your sweetie-pie… the Sweetie Pumpkin Pie Hat!
