Inspired by my original Christmas Cracker hat pattern, this version is more of a traditional beanie shape using finer weight yarn. However, it incorporates the same type of holiday motifs that made the original so popular.
The finished hat is 18¼ (20½, 22¾, 25¼)”/ 46.5 (52, 58, 64)cm around and 6.25 (7, 8, 9)”/ 16 (18, 20.5, 23)cm deep. Choose a size with approximately 1”/2.5cm positive ease.
