Santa’s Helper Hat

Santa’s Helper Hat

A Free Crochet Pattern

Santa’s Helper Hat is a simple top down beanie that uses double crochets throughout, and is sized from Preemie to child.

The yarn used is dk weight, but as long as you are getting guage, you should be able to substitute a light worsted weight yarn, such as Caron Simply Soft. It also uses a fur yarn for the brim. Honestly,I have had fun using the Lion Brand Go For Faux yarn. I love how soft it feels. It used to make the Classic Christmas Stocking, also.

As always, you can purchase an ad free copy from my Ravelry shop. The link will be at the end of this post. And, if you have any questions about this pattern, please feel free to contact me on social media or leave a comment below!
