The Witch Pumpkin Hat knitting pattern is a quick easy knit that looks like a cute jack-o’-lantern wearing a witch hat!
I really went back and forth with how to describe my new Witchy Pumpkin Hat Knitting Pattern. “Hat that looks like a jack-o’-lantern wearing a witch hat” seemed awkward and wordy. And who would say that anyway? But it is a witchy pumpkin hat? Or a pumpkin witch hat? Or a witchy jack-o’-lantern hat? Friends, I don’t know. This is one reason I never made it as a traditional artist, I’m terrible at naming abstract things. Everything I ever drew or painted was untitled.
Anyway, whatever you call it, this super cute Halloween hat knitting pattern is knit in the round on circular knitting needles with either double pointed knitting needles or the magic loop method used to finish the decrease section at the top.
To knit this cute Halloween jack-o’-lantern hat you will need worsted weight yarn in orange, black and purple. Easy peasy!
The basic hat knits up easily all in one piece and then, for this easy hat knitting pattern I decided the quickest way to add the jack-o’-lantern face to this knit hat was with duplicate stitch for knitting.
If you already know how to do duplicate stitch for knitting then you probably already love it. It’s a great way to add details and motifs to finished knitting projects without juggling multiple strands of yarn as you go like you would with Fair Isle or intarsia knitting.
If you would like to learn how to do duplicate stitch for knitting, I have a handy tutorial for duplicate stitch right here on my website. I hope you check it out either for this witchy pumpkin hat knitting pattern or for another one of my duplicate stitch knitting patterns. It’s so much fun and opens up so many knitting project possibilities once you learn how.
