I found a Santa outfit in a charity shop, but it didn't come with a hat, so of course I had to make one. Here's the pattern.... Really its just an excuse to post pictures of H in his hilarious outfit.
You will need:
100g Double Knitting Yarn in Red
20g Double Knitting Yarn in White
A white pom pom or a jingley bell
5mm Crochet Hook
Starting at the point of the hat, and with red yarn Ch3, and work 5tr in 3rd st from hook.
Do not join. You are working around in a circle and not joining, so when you get the the end of the first row, you just work the next stitch into the top of the first stitch you made.
Work this sequence of stitches: *work 1tr in each of the next 6 sts, inc in next st*. Continue until there are 12 rows in total.
Work this sequence of stitches: *work 1tr in each of the next 12 sts, inc in next st*. Continue until your hat has a slightly larger circumference than your littley's head.
Work 1 tr in each st around for 3 rows. Dc in next st. Change to white yarn.
Dc in each st around for 8 rows. Fasten off.
Sew on pom pom or jingley bell. You also could make this hat in green for an elf's hat.
