A couple of years ago, I got fed up with our cheap polyester Santa holiday hats and decided to make my own. In the video I share three fun hats I’ve elected to make for myself and family members:
For Rick: 2 Hour Santa Hat by Wendi Dunlap.
Mods: used a slightly thinner yarn (Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Bulky) and cast on 78 stitches on US 10 needles.
For Me: Santa Bang-y by Denise Bein Kroll.
Mods: Larger (8US) needle and larger pom-poms
For Mom: Christmas Tree Hat by Amy Stender.
Mods: Decorated with pom-poms. Go nuts!
Best pom-pom tools are the sets by Clover, which you can get at craft retailers and your local yarn shop.
