Christmas Santa Hat Pattern
I wanted to design a Santa hat knitting pattern that was fun and whimsical, so I came up with this idea with two poms instead of one!
This is the perfect accessory for holiday pictures, wearing to Christmas parties and to visit relatives for cuddles.
The Santa sack hat pattern is easy to make, knitting flat on straight needles.
This means that there is seaming needed, you seam the sides of the hat, then turn the right side out.
You will need a large pom pom maker to make the poms or if you are going for the traditional method there are many tutorials on Youtube.
Baby Christmas Hat
The baby Christmas hat knitting pattern is great for any beginners who are learning how to knit, as it is a quick project and great for stash busting.
Any yarns you have leftover from other projects can be used up for the pom poms.
