Newborn Santa Hat Knitting Pattern- an easy pattern for a Christmas must-have!
I can’t believe Christmas is less than 1 week away! Santa Hats are a tradition in my family so of course, I had to knit one for River. This Santa Hat Knitting Pattern is beginner-friendly and it’s knit flat. It only takes around an hour to make, so there’s still plenty of time left to make one! It’s knit on single point needles and it features a ribbed band and fluffy pom pom.
Happy holiday knitting!
