Last minute Halloween

Got a party to hit up this weekend? Hate to dress up? I've got just the thing for you... and it only takes a few hours to crochet up.

Seriously adorable right? (not me, the hat) Best news is the pattern is free! Just head over here and you can print out a handy dandy PDF. If you are making this for yourself you'll just need to increase a few extra rows until it's big enough to fit your melon (exhibit A above).

For the ladies grab some yellow yarn and attach some kick butt braids to the sides. Instant Helga the viking!

I actually made this last year for a gift, the little boy refused to wear any other hat last winter except this one... for that reason his parents were a little worried when they realized said hat got lost when they moved this summer. Don't worry, Auntie Steph will whip up a new one, just in time for his birthday, and for the days to start getting crisp.

PS. I'm participating in a Halloween bake sale this Sunday over at Running Ricig. All money raised goes to an amazing organization so make sure to stop by and bid on my boozy smore fudge!!

I think it's charming!  I'd like to do one in infant size for the grandchild on the way.  I love the pics I see of newborns wearing crocheted caps of all kinds.

that hat is awesome!

I think you need one to run in :) ooo and Mike and Chaz too, you could all match :D

I'm sure if you follow that pattern but stop increasing sooner than it says it would fit an infant :)
