This is my second and final crochet pattern for Blogtober. Check out the other pattern here. A few years ago, I crocheted a ghost and pumpkin applique that you could use to make brooches or whatever. This time I’m showing you how to crochet a witch hat! With everything witchy seeming to be popular nowadays I thought this would make the perfect Halloweeny crochet pattern.
If you crochet this project, you can post it on Ravelry or tag me @mooeyscrochet so that I can see your creation. If you want to learn how to crochet, watch my crochet how-to video here.
