Hi my fellow crocheters and happy holidays, It’s time to start Christmas gifts preparations, and one of the best and simplest handmade gifts to make would be hats in Christmas colors.
This hat is so easy to make, once you read the instructions carefully, you will finish it in no time, and you can make as many as you need to fit the heads of all your beloved ones. I tried in this design to crochet the same number of stitches but with different yarn weights and hook sizes, and came out with three hats: for a toddler (1 - 4 years), a larger one that fits a child (6 - 10 years), and the last one is an adult size.
Keep a look out for my other Christmas designs, I’ll be posting in the upcoming weeks, and don’t forget to check out my previous Christmas projects. Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope you stay safe and healthy.
