Little Helper Crochet Elf Hat

Little Helper Crochet Elf Hat

Dress your little holiday helper up in the adorable Little Helper Crochet Elf Hat. This easy crochet hat pattern is worked in the round in the half double crochet stitch, making it a fast project to complete. There's only one color change in the pattern, so if you're a little new at switching colors, have no fear! A cute little pompom dangles at the edge of the hat, and a delicate picot stitch edging sets off the color distinction. This crochet hat is available for the entire family, from newborn sizes all the way through large adult. 

Notes
-Picot Stitch Instructions: Ch 3, sl st into the top loops of the last stitch made, continue with instructions
-Some heads do not conform to standard sizes by age, so please measure for a more accurate fit.
-The hat can be started with a Magic Ring or with the instructions given in Round 1
-Most of the rounds are worked in a spiral; use a stitch marker or piece of yarn to mark the first stitch
If you wish to make a striped hat you can create even stripes by joining all your rounds:
-Begin each round with a chain 1; this starting chain does not count as a stitch
-Make the first HDC of the round in the same stitch as your starting chain
-Make a join by slip stitching in the first HDC of the round

What a cute item. I have also made many Santa and elf hats but like a previous poster said, they seemed to be missing something. Then I saw this pattern and realized it was the trim. That makes a big different. I am starting a new one right now to go with a diaper cover. Thank you for offering it.

I started this hat tonight. I'm having trouble with the increases. The top of the hat is looking too wide. Not as cylindrical as the pic. Also, how to crochet in the same stitch as the starting chain. Is that on the next round? Its so cute, I don't know what I'm doing wrong!

I have seen many crochet elf hat patterns, and most of them were also cute, but it just seemed like something was missing to make them look more like traditional elf hats. Seeing this one, I now realize it is the edging. The picot edging makes it look the way you picture an elf hat in your head. I will definitely try this pattern and I love that it includes sizes for the whole family.

This Little Helper Crochet Elf Hat is way to cute! I just love it.. I know I will be making at least 8 of these for my Grand kids who are big helpers.. The pattern is very well written and I sure hope mine comes out as well as the picture! Has anyone made this hat with the written pattern? If so how did it come out for you? I need to get the yarn and try this one. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Wow

WOW is right! This is absolutely adorable. I'm thinking about making one of these up for myself but maybe in red. I love to make people smile and I think this would do just that! I think with my trusty Dummies' Guide to Crochet I can figure out the stitching. It's so great that you have all the different sizes available but that's where I need help. Can someone tell me exactly how to measure on my head for the size? Would it be straight across above both my ears or at a slant or does it depend on how I would wear it? Not sure on this part--help please?!?

Place a tape measure around your head, about 1/8" above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. Basically you need to measure your head exactly where the hat will sit. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size. Hope this helps! =)

So cute! It would be adorable for a baby's first Christmas photo shoot.
