This spooky spiderweb hat knitting pattern makes the perfect Halloween hat for your newborn, baby or toddler, knit up this cute web pattern and add some spooky little spiders!
Ok, so look. I know you don’t automatically think spiderweb hat when you think cute knit baby hat. I get it. But it’s Halloween! For the month of October, anything goes!
I am not a fan of extremely scary Halloween, but kinda cute with a mild side of creepy is totally fine. And so I’m pretty into my new Spiderweb Hat knitting pattern. The spiderweb pattern is fun and little knit applique spiders are not scary or realistic, there’s just a little bit silly.
If you disagree, I have lots of other adorable Halloween patterns to knit, so don’t run away!
This adorable baby hat knitting pattern is knit in the round (the spiders are knit flat) and is a great project to practice your colorwork, stranded or fair isle knitting techniques with because it’s easy and consistent but not boring.
I do recommend making sure to keep your floats loose so the baby hat can stretch and consider trapping any floats longer than 4-5 stitches to keep the inside of your baby hat nice and neat!
You start this project on circular knitting needles and end with double pointed knitting needles to finish, but you can also knit this with the magic loop technique if you know it (you should learn if you hate DPN’s, it’s awesome!).
In the meantime, this fun colorwork pattern is a quick and easy knit and the spider appliques take just a few minutes to add at the end. They’re SUPER easy. Come grab your copy and get knitting!
