Here is a fun and easy Granny stitch hat that Father Christmas himself would wear with pride. Not content with designing a hat for a real sized person, accompanying this jolly headwear I have also included a pattern for mini versions. They look superb as Christmas decorations, either as a garland or as individual tree decorations.
