Easy Santa Hat (same as slouchy hat but with extra rows)

Slouchy Santa Hat – Kids age 8 to Adult

 

 

The pattern for the Santa hat is much the same as the slouchy hat  but with extra rows to create the pixie hat type effect – and of course you will need red and white yarn!

I used Boyes Great Value Double Knitting, which is just over £2 a ball – and I used less than a full ball of red, and only a small amount of the white – so it’s very budget friendly.

***IF YOU NEED DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE STITCHES AND A PHOTO TUTORIAL I SUGGEST YOU LOOK AT THE SLOUCHY HAT PATTERN FIRST, WHICH CAN BE FOUND HERE***
