Hi everyone, happy Friday! I know it’s been awhile but my life has changed drastically in the past month and I have some big plans for Wayward Pineapple Creations. What’s changed? Well, I quit my job of over 8 years and moved from one coast of Canada to the other in a blur of a couple of months. That’s right, I’ve left my home town of Vancouver behind and am making a new life for myself in Halifax, Nova Scotia! I’m living with my cousin, an incredibly talented artist currently working on a queer-themed Nova Scotia-set graphic novel called Kettle Harbour – check out their website here!

What does this mean for Wayward Pineapple Creations? Well, I’m taking a few months off from having a day job and am planning to work hard to develop my hobby into a real business. I want to design and add a bunch of new patterns to my Etsy Store, overhaul my website, learn how to properly market my work, and develop more exciting content for you folks, my followers! I also have exciting plans to write a children’s book, which I’m going to illustrate with my crochet – stay tuned!

Anyway, as Halloween is nearly upon us I wanted to celebrate by offering up my newly-designed mini witch’s hat crochet pattern for free. This hat is perfect to add a witchy flair to one of your dolls, or you could sew it to a headband and make it a super cute Halloween fascinator. The possibilities are endless!

Supplies Needed

Terms & Abbreviations

All details below are based on US crochet terms.
 
  • Mc: Magic Circle
  • Sc: Single Crochet
  • Inc: Increase
  • 3Inc: Work 3 stitches into the increase instead of 2 stitches
  • Dec: Decrease – I recommend the Invisible Decrease
  • FLO: Crochet in the front loop only

Pattern Notes

The hat is made in one piece, starting from the tip. Work in continuous rounds, using a stitch marker.

When reading the pattern, (_,_)*x means that you repeat the instructions in the bracket “x” number of times. For example, (Sc 1, Inc)*6 means to repeat (Sc 1, Inc) 6 times. The number in brackets at the end of each row is the total number of stitches you will have when you finish that row.

Pattern Instructions

Leave a long tail at the beginning. Once you are done, you will use it to sew the tip of the hat at an angle.

Using black:

Round 1: Sc 3 in a Magic Circle

Round 2: Sc 2, Inc (4)

Round 3: (Sc, Inc)*2 (6)

Round 4: (Sc, Inc)*3 (9)

Round 5: (Sc 2, Inc)*3 (12)

Round 6: (Sc 3, Inc)*3 (15)

Rounds 7-8: Sc around (15)

Round 9: (Sc 4, Inc)*3 (18)

Round 10: Sc around (18)

Switch to orange:

Round 11: (Sc 5, Inc)*3 (21)

Round 12: (Sc 6, Inc)*3 (24)

Switch to black:

Round 13: FLO – (Sc 2, Inc)*8 (32)

Round 14: (Sc 3, 3Inc)*8 (48)

Finish off, leaving a long end if you plan to sew the hat onto something (such as a doll). Cut a length of yellow yarn and embroider on the buckle. I pass the yarn over each line twice so it’s thick enough.

Finally, use the tail from the beginning of the hat to pull the tip down so it’s at an angle. Secure with a couple of stitches. Weave in all ends and you’re done!

I hope you enjoy this pattern, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to comment below or email me.

And if you made your own witch hat I would love to see a picture on Instagram! Make sure to tag me so I don’t miss it, @waywardpineapplecreations.
