It wouldn't feel like Christmas around here on the blog unless I included a Santa Hat Knitting Pattern! These hats are great for family holiday photos. As you can see, we've been having a lot of fun with them =) The design is pretty straightforward and thanks to the super bulky and yarn and big needles, these knit up fast. Perfect for the busy holiday season!

With the white yarn, cast on 28 (32, 36, 40, 44, 48) sts. Join yarn together. Work in K2, P2 ribbing for 3 inches. Switch to red yarn and knit in the round until piece measures 8 (9, 10, 11, 12, 13) inches from the cast on edge. Knit 2 together until you are left with 5 sts, switching to double pointed needles when necessary. Break yarn, pull through remaining stitches, pull to tighten. Make and attach pom pom.
