This adorable vampire hat knitting pattern is the perfect spooky Halloween knit for your baby or toddler this fall!
Friends, I cannot believe that it took me this long to design a vampire hat knitting pattern for Halloween. What in the world is wrong with me?! I have a ton of Halloween pattern including Frankenstein’s monster and a mummy. I even have a vampire-y bat hat pattern but no actual vampire, what an oversight! Vampires are a Halloween staple!
I find a lot of joy in imagining this vampire hat on a toothless baby. The irony really makes me laugh. I also remember watching my newborns eat and thinking they were kind of little vampires so it’s kind of fitting. Of course, my vampire is a friendly sort with sleepy eyes. He’s probably a vegetarian and eats organic cold pressed beet juice from his local co-op grocery store. Hence the happy little smile, right?
I have to say, the pointy ears on this one really make it for me. I haven’t done a lot of baby hats with eats on the sides like this (they usually go on top) and it’s so cute I might have to come up with some more! Baby V was really a big fan of this one when she tried it on. She immediately ran off to try and surprise her brother.
Her only vampire reference is the silly vampire in the very beginning of the Minions movie so she mostly just laughed and pretended she needed to put on sunglasses to stay out of the sun. So I think as long as you aren’t TOO honest about what vampires do this is still super cute for little ones. Add a cape from the dress up bin and your costume is complete! Easy Peasy!
