Halloween Cat Witch Hat

I adopted a beautiful little kitty named Lucy a few weeks ago, and I’ve already been having fun making her some festive accessories. Here she is, dressed up in a witch hat and a candy corn sweater, with a pumpkin prop.

The pumpkin and sweater patterns are from designers on Ravelry (see links above), but I designed the hat myself. Here’s the pattern!

Materials:

  • J hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Worsted weight yarn in black, orange, and yellow
  • Cat

Abbreviations:

  • sl = slip stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • *…* = repeat for the whole round
  • FLO = front loop only

Instructions:

Each number is a new round. The number in parentheses is the number of stitches you should have in the round when you finish it.

  1. (Black) 6 sc in magic ring (6)
  2. Sc around (6)
  3. Sc around (6)
  4. *2sc in next sc, sc in next sc* (9)
  5. Sc around (9)
  6. Sc around (9)
  7. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc* (12)
  8. Sc around (12)
  9. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc* (15)
  10. Sc around (15)
  11. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc* (18)
  12. Sc around (18)
  13. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 5 sc* (21)
  14. Sc around (21)
  15. (Orange) sc around (21)
  16. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc* (24)
  17. Sc around (24)
  18. (Black) sc around (24)
  19. FLO: *2sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc* (30)
  20. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc* (36)
  21. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 5 sc* (42)
  22. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc* (48)
  23. *2sc in next sc, sc in next 7 sc* (54)
  24. Sc around loosely (54), fasten off

With yellow: Ch 16, sew onto orange band in a square buckle shape.

You’re done! Good luck getting your cat to wear it for more than half a second. My best strategy is to repeatedly place it on her head and snap photos as fast as possible until I get something cute. This works best when she’s sleepy from a nap. Have fun torturing dressing up your cat!
