This adorable fair isle Halloween stocking cap knitting pattern is a fantastic knit with color chart that includes pumpkins, candy corn and spiders! It’s the perfect spooky Halloween knit for your baby or toddler!
Besides being cute, I really like designing stocking caps because there’s a lot more real estate to work with! For example, in this year’s adorable Halloween stocking cap, I managed to fit in lots of candy corn, very cute Jack-o-lantern pumpkins, spiders and even eyeballs (or are they ghosts?)
Top the whole thing off with a fluffy orange pom pom on top and you have a Halloween knitting masterpiece.
This cute kids’ stocking cap knitting pattern has a folded brim which makes it super warm and cozy, perfect for chilly late October weather. The pattern also includes clear and simple instructions, photos and a fair isle colorwork chart that is super easy to follow. The chart is also the same for all sizes which again, make this pattern a winner!
Please note that this baby hat knitting pattern does require basic knowledge of fair isle or stranded knitting techniques (knitting with more than one color at one time. There are also just three rounds that use 3 colors. But I promise, they’re super easy. If you prefer, you can skip those rounds (I have noted them in the pattern) and go back and add the third color with duplicate stitch later. That would also work.
You can choose to carry unused colors up inside the hat until the next time the are used or to cut them and weave in ends at each color change (this is what I did). If you do that, there will be some ends to weave in. Just know that going in!
This stocking cap knitting pattern is knit in the round and also requires either the use of double pointed knitting needles or the magic loop method to complete the decrease section. It is not designed to be knit flat. If that sound awesome to you, let’s get started!
