Scraps of orange yarn to make butterfly bow.
Still in Halloween spirit, I decided to do a witch hat pattern for my recently completed knitted tiny candy corn (though later on I put the hat on my knitted mouse too!). The pattern is easy and quick to make. The whole hat is knitted in the round starting from the brim and there is no joining required. Where you purl, the brim of the hat will naturally fold. I started doing a video tutorial, but then I realised that it’s very hard to see the knitting process as the needles are very small and don’t capture well on camera. Hopefully they are straight forward enough, but if you do need any help don’t hesitate to ask.

Cut yarn and thread it through each remaining loop with tapestry needle. Pull tight and secure. Seam all left over yarn. Lastly, use an orange yarn to tie a loop right above the hat brim and finish it with a butterfly tie
