Crochet Dinosaur Witch Hat

This year we decided at the last minute to participate in a trunk or treat in our town. We decided to do a dinosaur themed trunk. I wanted to make something for it even though we were running short on time. I decided on a crochet dinosaur witch hat to go along with our theme.

Most years for Halloween I wear a cat witch hat that I made a few years ago. This year I really wanted my hat to have a dinosaur theme, so I created one.

This hat is pretty simple to make. The only special stitch you will need to know for this is flo which means front loop only. There is a row of single crochet in the front loop only in the row where you transition from the main part of the hat to the brim.

  1. Oh, thanks for walking me through this… a crocheted hat with a brim seems like such a comlicated project, but you made it look much easier than I expected!
