My daughter is in love with her new Wicked Wizard Witches Hat! I designed this hat just for her, and she knew it! She barely let me even finish the hat before ripping it out of my hands. One of the best things about being a crochet hooker is that my daughter has been well trained to love hats! 😀 I am sharing this free crochet pattern, for a toddler size Witch/Wizard hat, with all of you <3 I hope you enjoy it as much as my daughter does.

Much appreciated for your sharing /* I made the hat and it was a big hit with my Granddaughter!!! She calls it her Fairy Godmother Hat!!! Thank You! Thank You!!!!
<3 hahahaha Thats so sweet! Thank you for sharing!
Just wondering if this would fit a 5 year old? If not, how could I make it bigger?
Thanks! Great pattern.
It would but it would be a little rounder where being stretched around the head… All you would have to do is add another increasing round and I bet it would be perfect!
Hey Corina, I have a question in round 5 does that mean 2 hdc in the same stitch hdc in the next 2 times, then repeat. The hat is just adorable!
Never mind I understand! I shouldn’t try to read a new pattern so late at night. Thanks for such a cute pattern!
Bahahaha! I do the same thing. Let me know if you have any other questions. 🙂
i love the hat very cute.but i’m having a hard time with the pattern.i’m not very good at hdc’s so could u maybe help me to do it in dc’s.by making up a dc pattern?
You can follow the pattern in DC too and I bet it will work. What size are you needing? I am guessing that if I followed this pattern in DC the hat would probably still fit my daughter just as well. She is 21 months.
um for my daughter i’ve used bigger hooks g,h f,so i’m not sure how to make it bigger do i need to use the same size hook as u?or can i use a bigger one ch longer?
she is 8 will be 9
I wouldnt use a bigger hook, if anything smaller just because the stitches are already loose. BUT it will be really easy fo ryou to make it bigger, just add a couple more increasing rounds <3
Weendy Loo says
I mean, what does HDC in next 2 stitch mean?
It means to Half Double Crochet into both of the next two stitches.
Weendy Loo says
Thank you. ^_^
Your welcome 🙂
This is the PERFECT pattern! But, I need help! I’m fine until round 5. Then I get lost! Can you spell it out a little clearer for me? I’m doing the 2 HDC in the first stitch, then combining a single HDC in the next two. So where I should have 8 sts I end up with 6. Is it supposed to be 2 HDC in the first stitch , 1 HDC in the next, and then another 1 HDC in the next? I’m guessing that every other row will follow this pattern and if I do it my way it comes out WAY wrong! Thanks in advance!
THere will not be any decrease stitches in this hat. You will want to do a HDC in both the next two stitches, not combining them into one. <3 hope that helps
Thank you so much!!!! Like I said, this pattern is PERFECT! I have a very undersized 6 year old daughter (still in toddler clothes) so finding a Halloween costume that fits both her size and age has been an exercise in futility. This hat is absolutely the perfect finishing touch for her!
🙂 That is great Kristen!! You are welcome to share pics of her dressed up after Halloween on my fb page 🙂
I finally got around to uploading my pictures from Halloween!!! I don’t have your FB. I simply went up by 2 hook sizes to make it fit my 6 year old. And she LOVES it! Thanks again for sharing this wonderful pattern!!! If you want, my FB is http://www.facebook.com/kirstin.p.bonney. The pictures are in my Halloween ’12 album.
quick quesstion what size hook is a 5mm
Its a size H/8.
Hi…this a perfect hat for halloween, I am a begginer. T
his will be my daugther’s 1st halloween. She is currently 11 months.
i started it, but looks a little odd. i think my mistake is i was doing 2HDC in the same stich and then 2 on each stich. By reading past post it looks like 2 HDC is in each stich right not on the same?
Its 2 HDC in one stitch, and then one HDC into next two stitches.
SO 2 HDC into stitch, Hdc into next stitch, and then hdc into next stitch 🙂
do u mark ur rounds
I do sometimes.. I can tell by looking where the end of the round is, but if you cannot, I would mark them.
do u have to ch 2
no, you don’t have to 🙂
ok so if i have any more questions i will ask u.my grandma taught me how to crochet i’ve gotten better at reading patterns.but when i got stuck shed help me she passed away this yr.so it’s been pretty hard for me when i would have qestions
You are welcome to join this group if you are on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/382474181781529/?fref=ts Its a great place for all questions 🙂
sorry to bother u but when u said hdc,or dc in next 6 sts or 8 in however many rnds that it calls for do u end the rnds there or finish around?
You should repeat around.
repeat meaning to go all the way around like u normally would?thats how i’m trying to figure it would be.
i finished my first hat on fri i it turned out cut.but got it a little big around the bottom just before the brim,i foregot where i was but that happens.so i’m going to make a nother one soon.i’m going to take apic soon and put it on my facebook
