Happy Halloween from Koneko Kawaii! To celebrate, I’m releasing this ghoulishly gross, eyeball beanie pattern for adults. (One Size Fits Most) ***This pattern has been modified slightly from the photos of the original beanie. I’m a newbie at pattern-writing, so if something doesn’t make sense, please don’t hesitate to message me!***
Abbreviations used in this pattern:
CH – chain
ST – stitch
SL ST – slip stitch
SC – single crochet (US)
DC – double crochet (US)
HDC – half-double crochet (US)

Special Stitch Instructions
Spike Stitch – Spike stitch is a simple stitch to do, and a creative way to add color to any project. The red veins part of the eyeball hat is done with this stitch. To do a spike stitch, simply insert your hook into a stitch lower than the usual stitch, and draw through a long length of yarn. For a longer stitch, just insert your hook into a stitch even lower down.
