Melissa Wildes sent me two ADORABLE Halloween modifications to my Candy Corn Hat! Check out the directions and photos below for a WITCH and a GHOST hat!
"This first is a witch, which I worked by using black through row 6, then changing to green, and working through row twelve, and finish off. Using black, ch 4 and slip stitch together, ch one and 6 sc in the ring leaving a length to sew it on (make 2 - these are the eyes). Then chain 15 and beginning in the second chain from the hook, slip stitch 14 times, finish off and leave a length to sew it on (this is the mouth). Then I went back and worked a row of slip stitches around the base of the black, the a row of DC. On the brim around the base of the black, I was working 2 dcs in each stitch, finish off and weave in ends!"
"Then I worked this one with just white through row 12, finish off, and make 2 eyes, by chain 4, then 6 sc in the ring, attach to hat, and then make a larger circle of black, or a smile for mouth and you have a little ghost hat!"
Thanks, Melissa, for your cute adaptations!!
