Knit a little creepy crawly (but silly) spider hat for your little one with this free knitting pattern!Silly Spider Hat Free Knitting Pattern for newborns, babies and toddlers!! | littleredwindow.com

Ok, so if you have arachnophobia, this is probably not the hat for you! But I was trying to figure out a cute hat to make for Halloween and a spider seemed perfect. I couldn’t quite wrap my head around how to make bat wings…maybe next year! Anyway, this hat honestly cracks me up. I purposely left the legs attached only at the end so they’d wiggle, and in real life it’s hilarious when baby V is wearing it. Plus it was actually really easy to make. The legs were much less tedious that I had feared. So make your own little spider hat for Halloween (or whenever!) and if you do, please share it with me!

Silly Spider Hat Knitting Pattern (6 mo. size, see PDF for other sizes)

Gauge: 20 st. = 4 inches

Worsted weight yarn in gray and black

US 7 16″ circular knitting needles

US 7 double pointed needles

Yarn needle

(If you need help, my favorite knitting reference book for everyone from beginners to advanced knitters is THIS ONE!)

Using long-tail cast on, cast on 64 stitches onto your circular needles with the gray yarn color. Join to knit in the round and k1, p1 in a rib stitch for 5 rounds.

Knit all rows until the hat is about 4 1/2 inches long.

Decrease (switch to black yarn, divide the stitches between 3 double pointed needles and knit with the 4th):

Round 1: (k6, k2tog) repeat to the end of the round

Round 2: Knit all stitches

Round 3: (k5, k2tog) repeat to the end of the round

Round 4: Knit all stitches

Round 5: (k4, k2tog) repeat to the end of the round

Round 6: Knit all stitches to the end of the round.

Round 7: (k3, k2tog) repeat to the end of the round

Round 8: Knit all stitches to the end of the round

Round 9: (k2, k2tog) repeat to the end of the round

Rounds 10: Knit all stitches

Round 11: (k1, k2tog) repeat to the end of the round

Rounds 12: Knit all stitches

Round 13:  k2tog repeat to the end of the round

Cut yarn, pull through loops and close. Weave in ends.

Legs (make 8…duh!):

Using double pointed needles as straight needles, cast on 15 stitches with the black yarn. Leave a long cast on tail to stitch the leg to the hat.

Row 1: Kfb, k5, k2tog, k2tog, k5 (14 stitches remaining)

Row 2: K5, k2tog, k7 (13 stitches remaining)

Row 3: K2tog, K4, k2tog, k5(11 stitches remaining)

Bind off and weave in that end, weave half the ends in on the “wrong” side of a leg and half on the “right” side so you have 4 legs facing one direction and 4 facing the other.

The head:

Using double pointed needles as straight needles, cast on 4 stitches with the black yarn. Leave a long cast on tail to stitch the head to the hat.

Row 1: kfb, k2, kfb

Row 2: purl all stitches 

Row 3: kfb, k4, kfb

Row 4: purl all stitches 

Row 5: kfb, k6, kfb

Row 6: purl all stitches 

Row 7: kfb, k8, kfb 

Rows 8-10: knit odd rows, purl even rows

Row 11: k2tog, k8, ssk

Row 12: purl all stitches 

Row 14: k2tog, k2tog, k2, ssk, ssk 

Bind off and weave in that end. 

To assemble the spider hat, use their long cast on tails sew four legs facing one way on one side and four facing the other way on the other side.
