Santa Baby Hat

There's just a bit of time left before Christmas, but that doesn't mean your little one still can't dress up as Santa! This long tail hat comes sized from newborn through 12 months, which means even if they're crawling and ripping hats off their heads (I speak from experience ...), you can hopefully still get a handmade Santa photo before all the presents have been opened!

Knit up in worsted weight yarn, this hat shouldn't take more than a few concentrated hours, meaning you might just have time for more than one little Santa impersonator!


I Love This Yarn! Solids (100% acrylic; 355 yards / 325 meters per 198 grams)

Feel free to substitute any aran weight (10 ply, 8 wpi) yarn. Yarn suggestions include Loops & Threads Impeccable, Vanna’s Choice, and Bernat Super Value.

MC: you will use between 100 and 200 total yards of red yarn.
CC: you will use just 40 yards (or less) of white yarn.
