Mrs. Claus Pointy Hat

an elf-style treat



I wrote Mrs. Claus a letter and asked her permission to share the hat pattern she uses to make elf hats. She kindly obliged. This simple hat is great for beginners and experts alike. It is knit from the bottom up in the round. This hat is a quick, cute project for any age and any level. This basic hat is a crafty canvas that you can adjust and personalize to your liking. This pattern includes detailed photo tutorial on how to make a pom pom with a pom pom maker.
