Elf Crochet Hats with Caron Cupcakes

November 28, 2017

One Caron Cupcake is the perfect size to make these elf-like hats!

I made all three hats the same size. Because of the loose nature of the pattern, they fit my 3, 5, and 7 year old. To adjust the size of the hat you could hook down or up a size.

It’s a super quick pattern and I finished all three of these in two days. I think photographing three kids was the hardest part 😉 There was a lot of loud, silly noises and jumping around going on to get smiles out of all three, at the same time. Not an easy feat, I’m telling you!

The hat is worked from the bottom up, starting with the ribbed band on the bottom. Then it decreases as you get to the top, ending with skinny rounds to make the pointed end that’s so cute!

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download in my Etsy shop or Ravelry Shop
