Size 8 needles, CO 66 sts. 3x3 ribbing for 6", the start decreases for crown.
Do you see the camouflage cap in the upper-right? Well, my daughter took it for her 3 1/2-mon. old son. Then, her 3 1/2 YO son wanted a cap just like it.
So, I used size 7 needles (magic loop method) and I CO 72 sts. I did 4" of 2x2 ribbing for cuff, then I knit 7" in stockinette, before starting decreases for the crown.

I used size 8 interchangeable for magic loop method and I CO 72 sts. (Multi of 9 for pattern.) (Pattern K8, P1 for pumpkin effect.) I also did a 4" 2x2 ribbing for a cuff, which provides lots of growing room. I did the "pumpkin pattern" for 7", then worked decreases for the crown. I used Red Heart Soft yarn in Tangerine. I made the stem by knitting an i-Cord in brown.
I used this pattern for the leaf: https://www.studioknitsf.com/how-to-knit-a-leaf-thanksgiving-diy-for-beginningknitters/ But, I knitted the leaf in garter stitch, the center stitch was purled. The garter st. prevented the leaf from curling on the edges.
