Crochet Witch’s Hat Pattern

BOO! Did I scare you? My blog is a pretty spooky, cobweb covered place lately, in keeping with the season.  We’ve been deep in packing, sorting our stuff into “ship”, “store”, “toss” piles.  The house is full of echoes with the loss of full bookcases and years of accumulated belongings.

I will be so glad to get all of these people out of my house.  We have been overrun with contractors for the last two weeks.  The painters have had the kitchen plastic-covered for two days.  They were supposed to have been finished with that on Wednesday.  They are rather slow.  They paint a little bit and then wander off, and they are not communicating well about their plans or just what the fuck they’re doing.

Since I can’t do anything else with them underfoot, I decided to use this opportunity to give you something I’d promised way back.

My original intention was to make several of these crochet witch hats and string them together in a garland.  Because, you know.  Garland!

I think you’ll find this pretty easy to throw together.  You could make several for a garland, or for bowl fillers.  Or dress up someone’s barbie dolls;)  I’ll send this one to my granddaughter.

I hope my instructions make sense, since I’m a wee bit distracted.  I’m listening to this to help me focus.  My darling daughter told me about it this morning.

Rd 1: Make sl loop (wrap yarn around finger, insert hook, yo pull up loop, yo, pull through), 4sc in loop; pull tail to tighten circle.  Join with sl st

Rd 2: ch 2, sc in same st, (sc in next sc, 2 sc in next) twice, sc in next, join with sl st

Rd 3: ch 2, sc in same st, (sc in next sc, 2 sc in next) 2X, sc in next, join with sl st to second chain of beginning ch 2. You should have nine single crochet stitches.

Rds 4 and 5: ch2, sc in next sc and in each sc around. Join with sl st to second ch of beg ch 2.

Rd 6: ch 2, sc in same st, (sc next 2 sc, 2sc in next) 2X, sc in next 2. Join with sl st to second ch of beg ch 2. You should have 12 sc stitches

Rds 12 and 13: ch2, sc in next sc and in each sc around. Join with sl st to second ch of beg ch 2.

Brim:

Rd 1: working in only one loop, the one nearest the hat, of each st – ch 2, sc in same st, (sc in next, 2 sc in next) 9X, sc in next. Join with sl st to second ch of beg ch 2; go through both loops this time.

Rd 2: working through both loops – ch2, sc in same st, (sc in next, 2 sc in next) 14X, sc in next. Join with sl st to second ch of beg ch 2. Fasten off.

Rd 3: Join eyelash yarn and work sc in each st around. Join with sl st. Cut yarn and weave in ends.

  1. Soooooo happy to see this here! I have the perfect doll for it too! Now best get working on a size for me!!! I won’t rush you – by next halloween is fine. 🙂

    1. I want to see your doll with the hat when you’re done:) As far as a size for you, just keep doing increases, regularly spaced until it’s the size you want. Your rate of increase will determine the….what is it? slope? of the hat. I know there’s an algebraic equation in there some where. You see! Math is important!
