  1. Your kids are so cute!!! I love seeing the things you crochet for them!! They make perfect models. These hats are very cute and I’ll give them a try after the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing the pattern.

  2. You offer free elf hat pattern, but require we sign up to your site. I don’t mind doing this to get offers of other patterns, but do object to having to give my personal credit card info. I don’t wish to create an account at this time. I will give this when required to purchase future patterns. I wish you would not make this information a requirement.

    1. There is no sign up required. I’m not sure what you’re referring to. When you click the graphic that says “click here to download today’s Countdown to Christmas free crochet pattern download” the pattern will download immediately. No sign in or sign up required. No personal info.

  3. Hi Breann,
    Could there be a mistake in row 21? I do not get to 36 stitches, but 38.
    When I dc in 10 stitches and 2 dc in the next till the end I do get to 36 stitches.
    I love this pattern! It works up really fast and looks great!
    And you have a handsome son posing the hat.

  4. No worries! Glad that I could be at service. It only proves that we are all human and all make mistakes sometimes. 😉
    Merry Christmas from the Netherlands!
