With the weather turning cooler and Halloween decorations beginning to show up in stores, I’ve been thinking about making fun hats for the kids, that also double as costumes. Where I live, it could easily be snowing or freezing on Halloween so incorporating a warm knit or crocheted hat into your costume is a smart move.

This simple and adorable Lael Viking Hat crochet pattern looks like it would work up quickly for a last minute costume idea. It comes in all sizes, so it would be great to make for matching family costumes. You could easily crochet one up in a couple of hours, I think. Also, how cute is that kid?
If monsters are more your jam for Halloween, this fun crochet pattern for Bronster and Missy Monster looks like an easy costume to throw together. You could pretty much just wear jeans and a t-shirt, throw this hat on and boom! you’ve got a costume! Simple for the person in your life who doesn’t want to put a lot of extra thought into a costume (I mean, someone’s got to make it, but…)
If you’re looking for a more involved and impressive hat costume, there’s this wild Krampus Hat crochet pattern. Perfect if you’re looking for something for a Where the Wild Things Are costume. Isn’t
Of course, there are still a lot of kids who want to dress up as their favorite characters from movies and tv shows and Minions from Despicable Me remains very popular still. Check out this simple, yet sweet little minion hat that would get any kid to wear a hat to school on a cold winter day! Maybe then my kids would stop losing them!
If you’re a knitter and not a crocheter, then there are even some adorable costume hats that you can make. This Kitten Hat Knitting Pattern is much more subtle than some of the other patterns, so it could easily be worn well past the Halloween season, but would also make another super simple last minute costume, if needed.
Foxes are super popular right now, too and this little Foxy & Wolfie Hat Knitting Pattern comes in three sizes: toddler, child and adult, so you could knit a whole family of foxy hats!
The great thing about babies is you can dress them as silly as you like and they always look adorable! This sweet Puppy Dog Crochet Hat Pattern would make a seriously adorable photo prop as shown here or a super simple and warm costume accessory for Halloween.
Which adorable costume hat will you make for yourself or a loved one? One time I made this super sweet Larry Boy crocheted hat for my son. Of course, my kids never give me much time when they decide what they want to be for Halloween, so I was pretty sure I was madly crocheting this hat at the last minute. Turned out pretty good. I didn’t have a pattern then and I don’t have one now, but maybe if enough requests come in, then perhaps I will sit down and try to write one up.
Pick your hat and get crocheting or knitting today! Or Pin it for later!
