Last year I found a cool pumpkin hat pattern for little kids. I figured that I could adapt it for adults. My resulting hat was a hat made with size 11 needles was huge. I made a stuffed pumpkin with it.
This year I used smaller needles (size 8) and success. I ended up knitting three of this hat, one for me and two more for my office mates. We wore them Friday. Turns out that our principal wanted one, too so I'm knitting a fourth one and going to give it to him.
Here is the pattern: http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Pumpkin_Hat__D10558220.html Now it is no longer a free pattern, and they did all the work of figuring it out for adults. It only costs $1.99 though.
