free pattern: candy corn hat


it’s up! click here for the pdf. it’s not fancy and it’s all on one page (i love that in a pattern!!).

if you notice any typos or have any trouble with it, please feel free to email me: noppstar [at] gmail [dot] com.

i’ve had luck with caron simply soft for a novelty item, but i did a bunch in plymouth encore this year and they’re fully functional, a tighter knit and a nicer material, warm and cozy. any worsted weight will do, and you don’t need more than 50 yards of any of the colors. please do let me know if you work it and like it. and i’d love to see photos of your loved ones wearing them! i have an album at flickr with some of mine! it’s already posted to ravelry as a pattern, if you’re there and want to document the project. :)

if you’re in my area, i’ll be teaching this hat as a workshop on saturday, october 6th at yarn haven in perrysburg. if you’re new to knitting in the round, this is a super easy project. you’ll learn knitting in the round, on double points or circulars, changing the color of the yarn you’re working with, and decreasing. :)

please don’t sell the hats you make from this pattern, unless you run it by me. also, please direct folks here rather than reposting the pattern somewhere else. :) enjoy!

    Even though candy corn freaks me out, I love the candy corn hat pictures! Good luck with the class, too! And hey, if someone knits up a candy corn hat and has a bunch of extra yellow and orange yarn leftover, they can always add some red and whip out some Jayne Cobb hats. :)

    [...] i also have cranked out the candy corn hats galore. including this one, a tiny cousin of the baby size… elaine is due in less than two weeks and when i made the baby one for her i knew it would be way too big on a month old baby’s head… so i worked it with the same amount of stitches around, but only did 8 rows of ribbing, with three straight rows of yellow after, then switched to orange, did one straight row and then started the decreases. after the first decreases start, it’s the same as the baby size instructions.

    Hi there, great hat! Would you sell one? Better yet, could I trade you a documentary film I made for the hat? I LOVE corn! Candy corn, too! I’ve written a corn-y poem, as well…Actually, it’s more of a stilted essay…Anyway, let me know. Great work, sperling http://www.FURIOUSLOVE.com

    [...] Also, check out this free hat pattern for the holidays. I am going to make two for my grandson. One as the pattern is written and one that is a silver or grey with a white, flat “tail” at the top of the hat so it will look like a Hershey Kiss. [...]

  18. A Candy Corn Hat for William | DK the Nautical Knitter Says:

    [...] This is just one of the cutest hats I have seen in a long time. It was so easy to knit up and the directions were pretty clear. I used a size 7 needle and worsted, acrylic yarn (for ease of washing). The pattern has directions for small (baby), medium (child), and adult (Large). Since William just turned two I went with the medium size. I wish I had gone with the large instead. Regardless, it is a one or two night knit and very fun to watch the candy corn grow to the white tip. [...]
