Christmas is over, and a lovely holiday it was. Friends, family, food, and gifts. Perfect all around!
I find myself with lots of different bits of leftover yarn from various projects. I can’t think of a better way to wrap up the holiday season than making lots of cute hats while I’m hanging out with my fantastic family while they play Rock Band or we watch a new movie.
This hat’s my favorite.
It’s warm, toasty and fast to make.
Use the same color yarn or coordinate two different strands for some extra cute head gear! I’ve also used loads of little scraps tied together (as shown in the first photo) along with a solid color for a unique look.
I’ve included my pony tail variation below if you want to wear a hat, but keep your hair up!
If you want to make hats, but not necessarily keep them, consider donating them to a handmade hat charity. Bella online has a great list of charities that will accept hand crocheted hats and other items.
