The Holly Jolly hat was inspired by all the things I love most at Christmastime! Hot cocoa, Christmas trees, reindeer, decking the halls with garland, and snow. What could be better?

The best part about the Holly Jolly Hat is that you get to have options with the pattern!
Written and charted in four different sizes –Baby (Toddler, Youth/Adult Small, and Adult Large), you can make one for the whole family. Plus, due to lots of feedback from knitters, there are two different design options. Choose from either reindeer or hot cocoa mugs in each of the four sizes. Simply choose your size and find the corresponding chart for the size and design of your choice.

Sizes are approximate and hats should be stretchy enough to fit a wide range of head sizes. The largest has a bit of slouch on an average adult head, so if you are looking for a tighter, more traditional beanie fit, you may want to size down to the Youth/Adult Small size. Due to the nature of the designs, the reindeer hat, regardless of size, will be a longer hat than the cocoa mug and will therefore have more a bit more slouch.

Sizes: Baby (Toddler, Youth/Adult Small, and Adult Large)
