Need pattern for a baby/toddler Santa hat!
Can anyone point me in the direction of a santa hat to knit for babies and toddlers? I've looked all over the internet, shops, etc., and can't seem to find one. I'd like one that would work for babies 3-6 mos. and up. I would appreciate it if anyone has any ideas! Thanks!

It should work if you start with a baby-sized regular hat--maybe starting with white furry yarn, and when you get to the crown, put a few rows between the decrease rows--you'd get the longer point.

Here is one for preemies which you could make with more stitches, or ones for adults you could make with fewer stitches. I used the lionbrand one (I think*) to make an adult hat and two kids hats. I also made one for the cat.


*they require a sign in and I don't know where my number is. I made them with chenille yarn.

For a 15 mos. old size, how many more stitches should I add from the premie size? I have a chart that gives head circumference! I guess I would figure it out from the gauge and just add on the stitches from that?

I looked at Lion Brand's website for their hat, but it jumps from 3-6 mos. up to children's 11-12 and then adult! I wish they had sizes for toddlers!

This is what I use as a guide for basic hats. As I said, the 'head' part would be the same, and if you add 3 or more rows between the decreases, you'd get the longer, tapered point. Or, you could decrease on each side of the center back stitch every other row--that might look best for the rest of the hat.

Oh now I know what the Cats are getting for Christmas

Thanks for that.
Sorry I can't help with the original question.
