Add candy corn fun to your fall festivities with my free crochet pattern for a Kids Candy Corn Beanie! Crochet this quirky cute hat for your kiddo to wear or share with a friend. This beanie pattern is easy and ideal for beginners. It works up in an evening and the result is darling and fun. Use my notes section to create a smaller or larger version for babies or adults too. This beanie fits a child ages 4 - 10 years, approximately.
