FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Fuzzy Monster Hat with Horns

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Fuzzy Monster Hat with Horns

It’s that time of year again! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Every year, we try to create something unique and fun to share here on YARNutopia. This year is no exception, and we have decided on some friendly monster costumes.

Nate pulls off the big blue monster very well! For his costume, I created the fuzzy hat with horns. I purchased the furry costume from Amazon and voila it was the perfect match!


My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.

Fasten off with long tail for sewing.

Sew horns to the hat in the top front (see photos for reference on positioning)

Assembly step:
Cut a TON of 4 inch strands of the turquoise yarn and the homespun purple yarn
loop 1 or 2 strands around the front loops you left unworked on the hat and tie them in knots (this is a very tedious part of the hat, but it’s worth it!)
Make the purple spots first, then go in and add the turquoise yarn. I skipped 2 sts between attaching yarn so it wouldn’t be too fluffy but you can add or do less. The monster hat I made has 4 medium sized purple spots on the head. Don’t worry about uneven strands, after all the strands are attached, you will give the hat a haircut to your liking!
