It’s that time of year when all the Christmas decorations start showing up in stores.  I feel like it was out before Halloween was even done.

They only seem to have 1 size of Santa Hat available though.  And I find the brim super scratchy on most of them.

My boyfriend has a Men’s XXL head, and finding any hat for him is difficult at best.  So I decided to make him one to wear for the holidays at work.  And while I was at it, why not make them in all the sizes.

Pom Pom

Start by wrapping the yarn around your hand a total of 100 times (so 50 times if you are using 2 colors).

Slide the yarn off your hand and tie it tightly in the middle.

Cut the yarn loops and sculpt your pom-pom.

Assembly

Attach the pom-pom to the point of the hat

Flip the hat inside out and sew the brim to the final round of the hat.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my pattern. I hope you enjoyed making one (or more) for the holidays.

I would love to see photos of your work, feel free to share them on the stitched pixels facebook page, or tag them with #stitchedpixelscrochet so I can see your work on instgram.

  1. Would be much better if there was a “print” format.

    I would love to make these for my great grandchildren but it is not convenient if I have to read the pattern from the computer.

    1. You can right click and print any page you like, unfortunately it will print all the pictures as well.

    2. What I have been doing with mine is copying and pasting them to a Word document. If you have a computer. It takes a little longer but worth the time and I put a sheet protector over it and stick it in my binder.
      Good luck
      Lynn

  2. I made 1 for my granddaughter, and it was very easy and fast to make. I made it in a half of a day. Very very cute. Lots of compliments.
