It’s spooky season and there are so many ways to have fun. If you’re looking for a creative and simple crochet project for your child, check out the Halloween Cat Beanie pattern!
This crochet beanie is so cute. It’s got two little cat ears stitched into the top of the beanie. The bottom of the beanie is trimmed in a decorative ribbed stitch while the rest is worked in a simple single crochet.
This is an easy crochet hat pattern and fast project that’s lots of fun to make and even more fun to wear. Plus the yarn is super soft because it’s a silk-wool blend! The Berroco Ginkgo is warm enough for those October nights but soft enough for sensitive skin.
