Skeleton Beanie Crochet Pattern


This is Halloween, this is Halloween, Halloween.. Halloween.. Halloween.. Did you sing that in your head, too? So you're a Nightmare Before Christmas fan, too?  I'm a fan of the movie and it's totally appropriate to watch from now until the end of the year! (Or all year round, right?) My son is also a fan of the movie so I made this beanie with a Jack Skellington applique.


This beanie was made last year (photo below) for him and it was something I sold at the time when I wa I sold quite a few, so I thought I would share the pattern with you all this year now that I have my own little blog to do so!


This year, we have already went through our Fall/Winter hats and decided which ones he wanted to wear again and discussed what kind of new hats he wanted me to make this year. He wanted to keep the skeleton hat, but I had to remake it in a larger size this year :)


I wrote up the pattern in multiple sizes: 6-12 months, toddler, child, and adult. Check the parenthesis for head circumference to pick the best size you need.


Update: I made a matching beanie for myself in a messy bun beanie style! You can find the pattern for that here. In our case, it is a 'mommy and me' set. Both patterns are written in multiple sizes!
