Many avid crafters cringe at the thought of paying for things they could make themselves, and Halloween costume pieces seem to be among the most cringe worthy. A simple Halloween top hat can cost anywhere from $5 to $20 depending on the store, and they are usually very plain. Luckily, if you know how to crochet you can avoid paying those prices.
One of the most popular crochet Halloween hat patterns at the moment is the Red Heart Halloween top hat. This hat pattern was recently featured be The Crochet Crowd on Facebook and YouTube. You can find a collection of user submitted top hats on The Crochet Crowds Flickr account. The pattern for this hat is available at Redheart.com.
Of course there are plenty of other Halloween hat patterns available online that are free. Many of them range in sizes from newborn to adult, and most are easy for beginners to complete.
