Crochet Jack O’ Lantern Hat

(This article contains affiliate links. These links helps support this website!)

Well, it is hard to believe but we are almost at the end of the summer! Before we know it, we will be watching the leaves fall to the ground. Personally, I am getting ready for a craft fair in the fall. I love to create hats and other fun crochet items. I plan on making a few of these Jack O’ Lantern Hats for a the craft fair. There will be lots of children at this craft fair as it is a MOPS (Mother’s of Preschool) Event so, I am hoping that people will like them!

This hat will fit an older child age 5 and above. It also fits me. This hat is super easy to make. It is very similar to several other hats that I have on this blog such as:

For tassels

Cut 12 pieces of the orange, and 24 pieces of the black. These will be cut at about 36 inches. Pull them through the bottom of the hat where it makes a point at the end of the flap. Pull the group of yarn half way through. Then, braid the tassel. Knot at the bottom of the braid. Repeat on the other side.

So, what do you think? Will you try out this hat pattern? I would love to hear about it, if you do!

Happy Crocheting,
