I knitted this in Cascade 220 for my daughter (who is 19 months old).  Didn't use a pattern, kind of improvised as I went.  If you are interested in doing:

For this size (about a 2T), using yellow, cast on 90 stitches onto a Size 7, 16" circular needle.

Work in 1x1 rib for about an inch.

Switch to stockinette stitch for about 15 rows.  Switch to orange yarn and knit three more rows in straight stockinette.

Begin decrease round on 4th row of orange *k 13, k2tog* for a total of six decreases.  Total stitches:  84.

Knit next round.

Continue alternating decrease rounds with a knit round.  Switch to white after 15 rows of orange have been completed, continuing your pattern of decrease rows alternating with knit rows until six stitches remain.  I went ahead and decreased those six to three by k2tog all the way around.  Pull yarn through remaining three stitches and tuck in ends.

Happy Halloween Knitting!

Very cute!  I'd love to make one for my daughter, but there is no way she will keep a hat on these days.... Sad

Thanks so much for posting directions.  I've been wanting to try out dpns, and this might be just the thing.  I assume they'd work as well as circulars.

Actually, I forgot to include that you'll need to switch to DPNs when the circumference gets too small for the circs anyway.  You could absolutely do the entire pattern on DPNs.

Gauge is about 5 stitches to the inch; I actually used a size 6 needle because I am a continental knitter and usually have to go down one needle size to obtain correct gauge.
