This Santa Sack Hat has a comfortably loose, slouchy fit and no side seams on the crown for a smooth appearance.

I admired Penny’s cute double-tailed Santa hat that she wears in a Christmas episode of the popular American sitcom “The Big Bang Theory.” This hat isn’t an exact replica, but its dual pompoms do provide a touch of whimsy.

The Santa Sack Hat will accommodate a wide range of head sizes, from teen to adult. The pattern is written for adult size L but can be adapted for other sizes based on the length of the foundation chain. Be sure to measure the wearer’s head to determine the best length for the foundation chain.

Hat is worked from the bottom up in rounds. As written, this pattern will yield a hat that is approximately 12 inches wide by 9 inches tall when laid flat.
