Chunky Santa Hat | Free Crochet Pattern

 

Try something new and crochet a festive chunky Santa Hat this season instead of purchasing one!

 

It’s fun to accessorize with Christmas themed pieces in the Christmas season. My family has always taken advantage of this time of year to wear themed things, though we don’t normally go the route of ugly sweater parties.

 

With all my winter crochet, I suddenly thought, “Hey, why not make a pattern just for fun?” And out came my Chunky Santa Hat. It is so easy to make and you’ll love how the fluffy yarn works up.

My favorite part of the pattern, hands down — the pom-pom! It’s big, squishy, and adorable!

 

The chunky part of the design comes when you hold two strands of yarn together. The band is worked with a strand of fuzzy yarn and a strand of sparkly. If you want extra fluff, however, use two strands of fuzzy yarn.

 

I dug around in my yarn stash for some fuzzy yarn and found Beautiful by Purl Essence. Unfortunately, however, it has been discontinued since I bought it years ago. The important thing to remember though, when choosing an alternative is that the yarn size is consistent. Any bulky weight yarn with some good fuzziness will do.

 

This chunky Santa hat will make a great gift and works up quickly! Interested?

Pattern Notes:
-Use two strands of yarn at all times in this pattern – two strands of red for the hat body, and a strand each of white (fuzzy and sparlky) for the band and pom.
-Hat body is crocheted in spiral instead of slip stitching to end each round. I recommend using a stitch marker to mark the first stitch.

Pom-pom
With both a strand of fuzzy and a strand of sparkly held together, make a 3 – 4 inch pom and sew to top of hat. Since I prefer a less bobbly pom on the top of my hats, I used a few dabs of hot glue to better secure it.
