How to knit a witch/wizard/warlock hat for Halloween

Another easy project to knit for a DIY Halloween costume: This witch/wizard/warlock hat is ideal for beginners: It’s knitted flat, and if you know how to knit and purl, you can do it!

The witch/wizard/warlock hat comes in many sizes (1 year to adult).

First, we’ll knit a triangle, starting from the base, decreasing gradually to form the point of the hat.

Then we’ll sew up lengthwise and close the cone.

To finish the hat we’ll sew up part of the base toward the inside of the cone, to form the brim. If you like it wider, knit more rows before the decrease section.

Materials

2 x 5 mm – US 8 knitting needles

These are amazing…one my favourite brands ever! Long enough to hold many many stitches, and a very smooth transition from the tip to the rest of the needle. I love them!

100 gr (3.53 oz) – 250 gr (8.2 oz) black wool Worsted, Afghan, Aran (Medium or number 4). We’ll knit with 2 strands of yarn at a time to make the hat more robust.

1 x Tapestry needle  This set is very handful: from socks yarn weight up to bulky yarn, you can sew up every project you knit!).

1 x Measuring tape

1 x Scissors

 

Gauge

16 stitches and 20 rows in Stockinette stitch using two strands of yarn at a time =  10 cm / 4 in.

Please knit a swatch and check your gauge before starting: If you get more stitches to the inch, you need to go up a needle size. If you get fewer stitches, go down a needle size.

 

Sizes and Measurements (head circumference)

1-3 years: 47 cm/18.5 in (100 gr of yarn)

4-10 years: 50 cm / 19.7 in (150 gr of yarn)

12-16 years: 53 cm / 20.87 in (200 gr of yarn)

Seam

Cut the yarn leaving a tail twice the length of the hat (measuring from the point to the base). Thread your tapestry needle and pull the yarn through the remaining stitches, to close the cone.

Join both sides (pulling the yarn through a stitch of one side, and through the stitch of the opposite side), until the point.

To form the brim, fold the base toward the inside, leaving some cm – in (only the length of the rows knitted for the brim), then sew up from the WS.

And give the point a little twist for a real spooky Halloween!

Abracadabra! Enjoy the hat…
