This hat can easily double as a doll hat or be knit to top a bottle-shaped Christmas gift (the best kind, right?). I think my favorite part of this adorable little hat is that it’s literally just a tiny hat – I would absolutely wear this colorful beanie any time had I made it human-sized.
Oh, what’s that? For me? Well, it’s the third ornament of Christmas, so it’s actually a new pattern for you. ;)

Between now and December 25, I’m going to share 12 ornaments for Christmas, all of which will be a free knitting pattern, crochet pattern or a yarn craft. I’ve got some great ideas planned for this series that I’m super excited about, so let’s kick things off with a sweet, knitted star.
Guess what? I’m the featured blogger in the current issue of Knitscene magazine!
I’ve never shared a finished object post, but many knitting blogs do, so I thought I’d give it a whirl! What’s a FO post? Basically, it’s a look at my take on another designer’s pattern, running down the yarn I used & why, pattern highlights and why I wanted to knit the pattern in the first place.
