Kid's Holiday Hat Knitting Pattern- a cozy and festive hat topped with a fun pom-pom!
I'm so excited to start rolling out my holiday knitting patterns! One of the things I love about Christmas if how unapologetically cheerful and over-the-top it is! The holiday spirit is infectious and people just seem friendlier this time of year. Christmas-themed hats are one of my favorite things to knit, especially for kids. This Kid's Holiday Hat Knitting Pattern is both festive and practical. It features a ribbed brim and the rest is knit in the round. The finishing touch, of course, is the large, multi-color pom-pom.

Kid's Holiday Hat Knitting Pattern
Also needed: Large pom pom maker
Size: Kid's S/M (for reference, Indigo is 3 ½ years old)
With the white yarn, cast on 46 sts. Work in K1, P1 ribbing for 7 rows. Switch to the green yarn and knit in the round until piece measures 6 ½ inches from the cast on edge.
Knit 2, Knit 2 together across the round until you are left with 8 sts. Break yarn, pull through remaining stitches and pull to tighten.
To make the pom pom: To create the tri-color effect, wrap the green yarn around one arm of the pom pom maker. Then wrap the white on top and finish with the red. Reverse the colors for the other arm.
