It’s an easy pattern, because it’s mostly single crochet stitches with color changes. Next, it’s worked in 1 piece, and seamed together at the end. Finally all you’ll need is to add a pom pom.
This pattern comes in 7 sizes from 12-18 months to adult sizes. It’s definitely a great fun Christmas themed hat pattern for the whole Family.
To design the crochet My Christmas Hat I needed some great holiday colors. I planned on making it with the same yarn & color work as the Alpaca My Holiday Sweater.
When I designed the sweater, I found some amazing yarn from We Are Knitters in the perfect thickness & color.
The Petite Wool is a high quality yarn that comes in a lot of great colors, but for this project I used Forest Green, Natural & Red.
The yarn comes in skeins that are 100 g & 153 yards.

The crochet My Christmas Hat is truly a great holiday crochet project! It’s fun, it’s goofy & a little silly. But it achieves the goal of putting a smile on your face. Right?
The beanie is great to wear during the hectic Christmas preparations & of course also during Christmas.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED:
READING COLOR DIAGRAMS:
- On odd rows move yarn strands due to color changes on the wrong side, behind the work (furthest from yourself), on even rows keep yarn strands due to color changes in on the wrong side, in front of the work (closest to yourself).
- Please note, that odd rows are read from the right to the left, while even rows are read from the left to the right.
- Grey vertical lines are made to show sizes. Start counting the grey vertical lines from the right, where the first line is for size 12-18 months, the second for size 18-24 months and so on.
When changing from one color to another, you’ll never finish the stitch with the color you where working with.
Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.
Repeat this every time you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.
CHANGE COLOR WHEN THE FIRST & SECOND STITCH ON A ROW HAS DIFFERENT COLORS:
When the first & second stitch on a row has different colors, you should finish the last stitch on the previous row with the color for the first stitch on the next row.
Then you should do the first chain to start the row with the color for the second stitch on the row you are starting.
This hat is crocheted from the bottom up.

Fasten off & cut yarn.
- With the wrong side facing. With a needle, seam the side of the beanie, start at the bottom & move up.
- Still working with the needle, pull through the top of every other stitch on the top of the hat with the same yarn, in a way that makes it possible to pull tight after going through those stitches.
- Pull tight & fasten thread.
- Fasten all threads & weave in ends.
- Optional: Make & attach a pom pom.
