Candy Corn Hat Pattern for Toddlers/Children

Since my Candy Corn Hat design was such a hit.  I decided to release my children's size pattern on here to share.  So here it is!!

Candy Corn Hat Pattern 
(Toddler/ Child size)
Shown above is the toddler size, which you can get by using a hook smaller than the ones used in the pattern below.

Hooks I & H (or for the toddler hat use hooks H & G)
Yarn: white, orange, yellow (I used Red Heart)

Note:  The chain 2's at the beginnings of the rows DO NOT count as 1 dc.  instead you will dc 1 or 2 times in the same st to start each row.

With I hook (or H hook for toddler size) and white yarn, Ch 4 (or magic circle) join with 1st ch to form a loop.  Ch 2.

Rnd 1: work 12 dc into loop.  (remember not counting as a dc) join. (12 dc)

Rnd 2: ch 2, dc in each st. join. (12)

Rnd 3: ch 2, 2 dc in each st. join (24)

Rnd 4-5: ch 2, dc in each st, join (24)

Rnd 6: ch 2, *2 dc in next st, dc in st, rep from *. join (36)

Change to orange.

Rnd 7: ch 2, 2 dc in next st, dc in next 2 st, rep from *, join (48)

Rnd 8: ch 2, *2 dc in next st, dc in next 3 st, rep from *, join (60)

Rnd 9-13: ch 2, dc in each st around. join. (60)

Change to yellow yarn and H hook (or G hook for Toddler size)

Rnd 14: ch 1, sc in each dc space around. join. (60)

Rnd 15-18: ch 1, sc in each st around. (60)

Fasten off.

Ear Flaps

Right Flap

Holding hat like this:

Count 8 stitches left from where you tied it off.  In the 9th st, join yellow yarn (H hook for Kids, G hook for toddlers) with a ss.

Row 1: in same st as ss, sc 1. sc 11 more across. (12 sc total) Ch 1 turn.

Row 2-4: sc across (12 sc) ch 1, turn.

Row 5: sc 2 tog, sc in next 8 st, sc 2 tog (10) ch 1, turn.

Row 6: sc 2 tog, sc in next 6 st, sc 2 tog (8) ch 1, turn.

Row 7:  sc 2 tog, sc in next 4 st, sc 2 tog (6) ch 1, turn.

Row 8:  sc 2 tog, sc in next 2 st, sc 2 tog (4) ch 1, turn.

Row 9: sc 2 tog, sc 2 tog (2) ch 1, turn.

Row 10: sc 2 tog (1) tie off.

Left Ear Flap

Holding hat the same way as above, count 19 stitches to the right from the tie off of the hat. In 20th st, join yarn with a ss.

Follow same ear flap directions as above, but DO NOT TIE OFF!!!

To finish of the hat, sc down the ear flap and around the hat, doing 3 sc in the tips of the ear flaps.  Fasten off.

Add tassel ties and braid.

And there you go!!  My fun little Candy Corn Hat for Fall fun!

  1. I have a question about some of the instructions. (This is my first time trying to make a hat and doing the rounds...)...when you get to the end of each row, how do you join? Is do you just do a slip stitch? Mine doesn't look very smooth and you can definitely tell where each of my rows start and stop.

  2. To join, I make a slip stitch,then you chain 2. Then I will do the next double crochet in the same stitch, and so on. This will make it look a little smoother. There is no getting away from seeing where you join, but that's the back of the hat and no one notices anyway.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern for free! I made them for all the kids in my family and they loved it! There's a gif of some of the pictures I tried to take of them wearing it on my blog, feel free to check it out
