On the second day of Christmas my true love made for me a Santa cap. I ended up making 3 of these this year with one fitting me by accident. I was reminded once again that checking the gauge before starting a knitting project is important. I was trying to make one for each of the kids. The hat I made for Sasha is too big but Sasha has informed me that he doesn’t need one because he has a Santa hat from the dollar store. Perhaps once the dollar store hat has ripped or the glue seam dries out he will want the knitted one. I can only hope.
If you are interested in the pattern, it was free from Lion Brand and can be downloaded here. I had to edit the pattern to get the right gauge for the bulky yarn mentioned below.
I used Lion’s Pride Woolspun, Red (body) and Fisherman (band and tassel)
P.S. Ericka the one for Grace was knitted just for her 🙂
