A standard witch's hat is cute, but the frilled edging on this one gives it even more cuteness for your little witch (of course you can make it without the frill if you prefer). A simple cone-shaped hat, this is a great project for learning to knit in the round on two circular needles, and it's a great basic hat you could use not as a witch hat, too, if it were in a different color.
- about 85, 110, 120 yards medium weight black yarn
- two pairs size 7 US (4.5 mm) circular needles (or one to fit the circumference of the bottom of your hat, plus a set of double-pointed needles to work the top of the hat)
- stitch marker (optional)
- tape measure, scissors, yarn needle
16 stitches and 24 rows per 4 inches (4 stitches and 6 rows per inch) in Stockinette Stitch in the round.
To fit a baby (toddler, child). Finished circumference 14 (16, 18) inches. The yarn I used does not have a lot of stretch, so a measurement close to the child's actual head size is preferred. Instructions are given for the smallest size first, with larger sizes in parentheses. Sample is large size. All sizes are 9 inches tall.
