Candy Corn Hat

The weather here is getting cool which inspired me to make my most recent project: Candy Corn Hat.  It's made of cotton so it will keep little heads warm but it's still breathable, perfect for cool fall nights!



Supplies:
White, yellow, and orange cotton yarn
Size 8 knitting circular or dpn needles
Yarn needle

Begin by casting on 64 stitches with yellow.  Join and knit in the round for 2 in.  Switch to orange and knit in the round for 2 in.  Switch to white and knit in the round for 2 rounds then begin decrease as follows:
