Crochet Santa Hat Christmas Ornament Pattern Notes
Red yarn for main color- (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
White yarn for accents
“H” hook (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends
Abbreviations used in our patterns:
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet
Red hat Main Part:
Round 1: Chain 2. 2 sc into the 2nd ch from hook. Ch 1 and turn. (2 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in both sc from previous row. Ch 1 and turn. (4sc)
Round 3: 2 sc in first sc and 1 sc in each of remaining sc. Ch 1 and turn. (5 sc)
Round 4- 8: Repeat process from round 3 increasing each row by 1 sc in first st until you reached your desired length / size.
(I finished with 8 rows which ended up with 8 sc across before last round) Ch 1 and turn. (8 sc)
Round 9: Sc in each sc across. (8 sc) Finish off or if you like a more finished look like me, slip stitch in each stitch all the way around the hat to give it a nice outline.
Note: You can adjust the size and length easily. If you want a wider base for a much larger decoration, start of with 4 chains in round 1 and increase each round as instructions. If you just want a longer hat than in pattern, just continue to add rows like row 3, increasing 1 sc per row until desired length.
Bottom white trim on hat:
Attach white yarn to end of final row of completed red hat part (see Round 9 above) with a slip stitch.
Round 1: Ch 1. Sc in first st and each st across from final row on red hat part. Slip stitch into last sc as well. Ch 1 and turn. (8 sc for mine)
Round 2: 3 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each sc across until last sc, which you will put 3 sc. (12 sc) Slip stitch in last st.
Pull yarn through and fasten off yarn.
Top white pom pom for hat:
Round 1: In a magic circle, chain 1 before making 6 sc in circle. Sl st to top of first sc st. (6 sc)
Pull yarn through and use extra tail length to tie on to top of hat and blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.
(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. )
That’s it. It’s a pretty simple project for beginners and the ornament set make great little holiday gifts to go into baskets or stockings.
