Candy Corn Yarn and Free Hat Pattern!

Yesterday a package arrived from Arabella. She designed the yarn and hat concept.
I designed the hat pattern using my free Rainbows Eve hat pattern as a starting point.
The result is an adorable fall hat! Knit using Arabella's handspun Candy Corn yarn to avoid color changes! Buy handspun Candy Corn yarn here.

FREE CANDY CORN HAT pattern is below...

Here they are!

Traditional Flavor (is it vanilla?)
And Chocolate!
Now for the FREE PATTERN~
Materials:

Bulky weight yarn in 3 colors, approx. 80 total yards (hint* Using MW Candy Corn yarn eliminates color changes)

Size 10 1/2 circular needles, 16 in. length

Size 10 1/2 double point needles (dpn)

Continue to decrease and knit 4 rows between each decrease, (switching to dpn when necessary), until 8 st remain on needles.
