So I updated my candy corn hat pattern a little to suit my four year old son.  It has a rolled brim and a longer taper.  Basic pattern:

Using Cascade 220 in yellow, CO 80 stitches onto 16" circ or DPNs (I used size 6 needles, but I knit loosely [continental] so you might use size 7).  Rough gauge is 5 stitches per inch.

Join and knit in the round.  Knit five rows in stockinette (knit every round).

Row 6, purl.

Row 7, increase one stitch every 16 stitches for a total of five increases.  85 stitches on your needle.

Knit for 15 more rounds.  Switch to orange.  Knit 6 rounds.

On the 7th orange round begin decrease pattern:

*Knit 15 stitches, knit 2 tog* five times.  80 stitches.

Knit next row.

Continue decreasing five stitches every other round.  When you have completed 19 rounds of orange, switch to white yarn, and continue decrease pattern until five stitches remain.  Pull tail through five remaining stitches and weave in ends.

Happy Halloween!

I love this! I just found some candy corn socks for my 2 year old... they have a little face on them with fangs...I think that would be cute on this hat too!!

That's absurd, I love it!
