Free Crochet Pattern: Elf Hat

Crochet pattern Elf Hat by CrochetZone.com

Elf Hat

Dress up to help Santa in this cute Elf Hat. The hat is worked in back loops to develop the texture, but in worsted weight yarn it goes very fast. I added the white trim around the band and it reminds me of a crown. Add a pompom for the finishing touch – here are is a good tutorial on how to make one without and special equipment. There are sizes from Baby to Adult so  there should be something for everyone. I hope you enjoy making it and will share your finished pictures on my Facebook page.
