Friendly Ghost Hat Knitting Pattern

Friendly Ghost Toddler Hat Knitting Pattern
This season I’ve made a knitting pattern for a baby Pumpkin Hat and Candy Corn Hat so obviously, a Friendly Ghost Hat Knitting Pattern was next! This is a basic beanie with a rolled brim which I thought kind of mimics a ghost’s shape. I took the easy route with the face and embroidered it on after I was finished knitting. Hope you like it!

For The Face 

I marked the eyes and mouth off with dressmaker pins first so I would knot where to stitch. The eyes begin 5 1/4 inches up from the brim of the hat. They are 1 3/4 inches high and 2 inches apart from each other. After I filled in the eyes with the black yarn, I went in with the white yarn to add pupils. The mouth is 3 inches wide and the bottom part is 2 3/4 inches up from the brim of the hat.
