Introduction

I managed to whipped up this little Santa hat very quickly and I'm really happy with the results. The pattern is very simple and can be adjusted to fit the size of any baby's head (perhaps even make one up for yourself!)

To adjust the size of the hat either work a few extra increase rows in red to make it larger or work fewer increase rows to make it smaller. When you get to the white rows be sure to do one row of increase and then continue to work the remaining 6 single crochet rows.

Materials List

4.5mm hook
Red double knit wool (worsted weight)
White double knit wool (worsted weight)
Scissors
Cardboard (to make the pompom)

Yarn needle

Finished Size

0-3 months old

Gauge

*will provide a gauge later*

Notes

This pattern is written in American notation so 1 sc (American) = 1 dc (British)

Work this hat in a continuous spiral from start to finish.
