8 Spooky and Sweet Crochet Halloween Hats for Kids

Unlike most of my friends, I do not look forward to Halloween each year. I’m a scaredy cat, and I hate creepy costumes and masks. Fortunately, kids make Halloween more fun — and way less scary.

Crochet Halloween hats make Halloween more fun, too! With the right yarn, you can make anything from a creepy mummy to a sweet pumpkin. Even adults can get it on the crochet Halloween hat fun.

Take a look at these crochet Halloween hats for kids and you’ll see what I mean. Who could be scared of such cuteness?

Jack-O-Lantern Earflap Hat

This is for those of you who like a traditional crochet Halloween hat pattern. The earflaps keep you warm on chilly fall days. I love the stitched mouth on the pumpkin pictured above, but you could also embroider a plain backstitch if you want your pumpkin to look a little less creepy.

Lion Mane Bonnet

There’s just something about a baby in a lion mane hat that makes every say, “Awwwwww.” (I’m definitely one of those people!) The trick to achieving a super-fuzzy mane is to use the right yarn. Here, designer Bowtykes used Lion Brand Homespun and unraveled it a bit to give it even more fuzz.

Cutest Witch Beanie

Witches can be cute, right? This beanie has optional braids attached to it that you can make any color you’d like. (I think I’d choose green!) The pattern is sized for kids and adults, making it a great hat to wear to the office Halloween party.

Ghostly Boo Hat

Most Halloween costumes are either spooky or sweet, and I think this one leans more toward sweet. This hat is great for kids to wear all month long leading up to Halloween. Crochet it in black for a slightly spookier Halloween look.

Spooky Spider

It’s not a  Halloween roundup without a spider! This spooky spider is stuffed with poly-fill to make it even creepier. Pair the hat with a black sweatshirt and sweatpants for an easy — and warm — Halloween costume for babies.

Bandage Head Mummy Hat

Here’s another alternative to the mummy hat. It’s a simple way to dress your kid for a Halloween party at school, and judging by this kid’s face it’s a lot of fun to wear! Kids will giggle over features like the giant eyeball, but all the pieces are crocheted and sewed on separately, so include the pieces that suit you or your kid’s tastes.

A lot of these crochet Halloween hat patterns require skills for crocheting in the round. Not quite sure how to do that? Then check out Stacey Trock’s Crocheting in the Round class to learn how to increase in the round and even crochet some colorwork!
