Huckleberry Love: Crochet Ghost Knot Hat

Hello again everyone!!

I'm so happy to back again sharing at From G2B. Last time I was here I shared a free crochet pattern for making a Baby Duck Easter Hat and because crocheting is one of my favorite things to do, I've decided to share another one of my patterns with you all!

Today I'm going to be sharing a baby crochet ghost knot hat pattern with you all. It would be the perfect idea for Halloween, especially for those of you that live a little bit further North than we do down here in Texas. I know that it's only August, but if you're anything like me, you know that starting to plan early is the only way you'll get things done before they're due. Far too often I wait until the last minute and end up in a mad rush to get what I need to done. This will give all of you out there like me, a bit of time to hopefully get it done in time. You're welcome. :)

Can't Get Started Without: 

  • ~worsted weight yarn in black and white (I used I Love This Yarn 'Super Soft')
  • ~a US H/5.5 mm crochet hook
  • ~tapestry needle
  • Stitches and abbreviations you will need to know for this pattern:
  • ~magic ring
  • ~SC- single crochet
  • ~HDC-half double crochet
  • ~DC-double crochet


**at the end of
each round DO NOT join to the first stitch, just continue to DC into
first stitch at the beginning of each round** (this helps to eliminate a
seam in the back of the hat)**

With white yarn, start by making a magic ring; ch2, 6 HDC in magic ring
Round 2: HDC in each stitch around (4HDC)
Round 3: *2HDC in first stitch, HDC in next stitch; repeat from * around (6HDC)
Round 4-10: HDC in each stitch around (6 HDC)
Round 11: *2HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 2 stitches; repeat from * around (8HDC)
Round 12-18: HDC in each stitch around (8HDC)

The top part if the hat is now done. 

At this point you can
tie it into a knot or wait until the hat is a little further along. I chose to tie my knot once I was a few rounds down to keep the piece out of my way.

Round 19: 2HDC in each stitch around (16HDC)
Round 20: *2HDC in first stitch, HDC in next stitch; repeat from * around (24HDC)
Round 21:*2HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 2 stitches; repeat from * around (32HDC)
Round 22: *2HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 3 stitches; repeat from * around (40HDC)
Round 23:*2HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 3 stitches; repeat from * around (50 HDC)
Round 24-39: HDC in each stitch around (50 HDC)

The hat will be very long, but don't panic.

You need those few extra rows to give the hat a rolled brim.

See, much better!

Eyes (make 2):
With black yarn CH 9,

Round 1: HDC in 2nd ch from hook, HDC in next 6 stitch, 2HDC in last ch from hook; continue working around back side of chain. HDC in next 7 stitches. Join with first st. 

Round 2: 2 HDC in first stitch, 2 HDC, SC, HDC, ch2, HDC in same stitch, SC in next 4 stitches, 2DC in next 3 stitches, SC in next 2 stitches, 2DC in next 2 stitches, SC in next 3 stitches, join with first stitch.


With black yarn CH 10

Now that your eyes and smile are finished all you need to do is sew them onto your hat. I wanted my eyes to look more ghostly so I turned one of the eyes upside down so that they were not exactly the same on each side. Ghosts are a little mischievous so I decided to give mine a little side smirk, but feel free to place your ghosts mouth wherever you'd like. :)

And there you have it, a really cute and pretty simple Crochet Ghost Knot Hat. 

I love how it turned out, 

and my little miss sure liked modeling it for me. :)

I hope this little ghostie will get you inspired and on your way to being ready for Halloween.
