Santa Baby

Our baby boy is very tiny and as he was premature and growth restricted, it's difficult to get clothes to fit him nicely - especially hats! What with Christmas coming up, I wanted to create a festive hat to help keep him warm when out and about. 

This quick make is perfect for the forthcoming week.

This YouTube video helped me make the basic beanie hat...


I added simple ear flaps (decreasing stitches) to ensure he'll be nice and snug. And a long chain from each flap created an easy tie.

A simple (though far from perfect...) pom-pom added the finishing touch.

Happy Christmas! 

We know that ours will definitely be a very happy one!
