0-3 Month Elf Hat

This free crochet pattern, for a 0-3 month Elf Hat, will be so adorable as a Christmas photo prop! As soon as I get some pictures of this on a baby I will be sure to add the photo here and also onto my Facebook page. Have fun with this YARNTASTIC holiday pattern!

Supplies

Medium Weight Yarn (I used a combination of Redheart and I love this yarn) ~Dark Green, Light Green, White, and Red
5 mm  Crochet Hook
Crochet needle (just for weaving in ends and attaching pom pom)

Stitches

CH- Chain
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet

 

Tip: When working my round, my last stitch went into the starting stitch, the one that had the CH 1 from the start of each round.. making it so the hat appears seamless.

Finish off

To make the pom pom I actually used a flyer that came into the mail. I wrapped each color around it 20 times  (one color at a time) Took the yarn off the flyer and tied in the middle.. cut loops and the sewn on the pom pom.

I also think a bell would be super cute instead of a pom pom. And I had even thought about adding a large  button to  the front of the hat.

      Click the PDF or PRINT icons that are located at the bottom of the post. If the pin in option pops up, just click to the left of it to avoid pinning.

    I made this yesterday. I don’t know how to show you on here so, I will share it with you on facebook. I decided to make it child size but it ended up adult size and I also added trim.
