This free crochet pattern is for a cute witch hat for cats. This pattern is made using only single crochet stitches as well as Brava yarn from WeCrochet.
If you know that I love hats, you may also know I love cats! I have 2 sweet cats, a 13-year-old boy named Yokie and a 12-year-old girl named Lilly. We used to have another cat, but our adorable 7-year-old tabby boy Nibbles passed away last year. But Lilly and Yokie are very happy and love attention all day. So much so that the Fall Season and upcoming Halloween celebrations gave me an idea to make a witch hat for them.
Isn’t it so cute?

Cat Crochet Hat Pattern
I think I’m hooked. HAHA! As I love crocheting hats and of course love my cats, I truly believe you will see more cat hat patterns in the near future. What do you want to see next? A Santa Hat? Feel free to email me or leave a comment below.
But is cat hat-making different from normal crochet hats? Yes, a bit. They are a lot smaller of course and usually include holes for the ears to poke through.
But does that make them harder to make? No actually not. And of course, they are much faster to make too. Just be aware that not all cats love having something on their head and it should be easy for them to remove it if they wish to kick it off. So don’t tie the hat on too tight!
Ready to make one, too?
