There are many patterns for Santa Hats out there. This is one of my favorites. I love the thick and fluffy trim!
I made two of them for my twin grand kids, Harper and Sadi. I used the free pattern from Creatiknit which I accented with Holly Leaves and Berries. I added a cute gingham bow to Harper's hat. I'm thinking of tying a Christmas bell to the tip of each hat so that the twins will jingle when they walk.
The pattern uses #6 worsted yarn and a Size N hook, the stitches work up very quickly! Instead of using #6 worsted yarn for the hat body I used one strand of #4 yarn in red and one strand of #4 Caron Simply Soft Party yarn in sparkle red. I held both strands together while making the hats. For the white trim I used Bernat Baby Blanket Super Bulky #6 yarn in white. I used this for the pompom too. The holly leaves and berries are made with #4 yarn in green and red. I made the bow using 5/8″ ribbon.
Hook Size N 9mm
#4 worsted yarn in red, sparkle red, and green
