Crochet Patterns for Kids

Free Halloween Witch Hat Crochet Pattern
Copyright © Hookfully

Thanks for checking out free Halloween witch hat crochet pattern. To begin, I’m not a massive fan of Halloween. Saying that I don’t want my children to think I’m a completely boring mum. With this in mind I decided to make a little effort this Halloween. When I say little, I mean little! This is the smallest witch hat I could get away with. The crochet witch hat hair accessory paired with a black jumper and heavy makeup made me look the part. On the plus side I didn’t have to spend a fortune or put hours of effort in to take part. I think I can safely say that’s the ultimate goal for most busy mothers.

Crochet witch hat description

The first thing you’ll notice is the witches hat is attached to a hair clip. If you don’t have a hair clip handy you could also easily sew it to an elastic. The completed Halloween hair accessory measures just 9cm wide and 6cm tall.

How to crochet a small witches hat

So the witch hat crochet pattern is easy skill level. You will need to know basic crochet stitches as well as being able to increase & decrease. You’ll also need to do a simple colour change. Additionally, basic sewing skills are essential to attach your witches hat to your hair accessory. Overall it is a very quick and easy project and uses very little yarn. Speaking of yarn, I used DK (weight 3) yarn with a 3.5mm crochet hook to complete the project.

Pattern notes

I do not count chains in my stitch count.

Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.

Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc in next stitch.

You will need hair clip or elastic to work sew your hat to.


You will need the following supplies to complete the project (links will take you directly to my recommended supplies on love crafts / amazon)
