A Christmas Tree Hat


Crochet a Christmas Tree Hat with directions provided by one of those Internet crafters, known only as Debbie G.

The Internet is filled with pilfered patterns passed down from blog to blog until after a while we aren't sure who created them or who wrote about them in the first place. But on the days when you need to write a good 'filler post' or just something different to read about, or say...crochet...sit back grab some yarn and a crochet hook and make someone you love a little seasonal gift.

Materials List:
Red Heart Soft (or any Super Soft) 4ply yarn
1 sk green, white, red, yellow, and any other color for decorations
Size G hook
Yarn Needle
Finished Size: One size fits all
Gauge: None

Notes:
Add wine glass Christmas charms, fuzzy pom poms and other miniature decorations. Make a long sc strand and use it for the garland, or make up your own. If you like, you could also add a star on the top.
