Baby Candy Corn Hat Knitting Pattern- Fast & Easy!

Baby Candy Corn Hat Knitting Pattern- beginner-friendly!

Baby Candy Corn Hat Knitting Pattern by Gina Michele blog

Nothing says “Halloween” like candy corns! The tri-color design is instantly recognizable. Naturally, I had to take this autumn treat and turn it into this Baby Candy Corn Hat Knitting Pattern.

This hat features a ribbed brim. The rest of the pattern is knit in the round with some very simple color switches. There is some basic decreasing at the crown. This pattern is beginner-friendly as long as you’re comfortable working with circular and double point needles.

The finishing touch on this hat is a big pom pom. My favorite way to make a perfect pom pom every time is to use a Pom Pom Maker. Pom pom makers create full, fluffy poms every time and they’re so easy to use! You simply wind the yarn around the arm on the maker. Then, close the arms and cut around the grove. Tie a string to secure and you’re finished! You can check out my Perfect Pom Pom Tutorial here to see how it’s done.

Happy knitting!
