Candy Corn Hat Free Crochet Pattern

October has, as per usual, incited a flurry of frantic crochet activity on my part as I try to outfit myself and my loved ones in cute and warm Halloween accessories. Actually that’s not terribly different than usual, but add in pattern development and schoolwork and you’ve got a busy month on your hands.

I’ve been working this great Knight’s Helmet pattern for Chaston – it’s free and so far the pattern has been great, I recommend it! Make sure you measure as you go, though, since she doesn’t give a gauge. Seems like that helmet would look really good with a nice medieval style hood, no?

Also, what’s cuter than dressing a baby up as candy?

I got a request for a candy corn hat for a 6-month old, and wanted to share the pattern in case anyone else has similar ideas! This little hat is adorable and easy, 8″ long from point to brim, with a 17″ brim when fully stretched. The fpdc (front post double crochet) and bpdc (back post double crochet) give the brim some elasticity so it will not fall off of baby’s head.
