The Trendy Elf

The Trendy Elf

"This elf hat is made in one piece construction with two strands of yarn and is seamless. This method is good for a variety of reasons, there is no seam where colors are changed, it takes less time since there is no cutting of yarn and weaving in of ends and it allows the ribbed edge to be done in two different colors giving it a unique twist. Color changes are also not done in the traditional way to give a seamless look. (Yarn does not travel it simply hangs until it is needed so there is very little waste, maybe 6 inches of each color total)"

The elf hat that is worthy of a starring role in a holiday boutique. What is unique about this design is the more refined and more "grown-up" style, versus the classic elf hat that looks pointy and stiff. It has its place. But this hat can be worn out and about town for some fun holiday spirit! Worked with a double strand of your pick of colors with the non-working color being carried behind. Half double crochets are just perfect for this hat.

Its still a bit early to be thinking about Christmas hats, so Im bookmarking this pattern for future use. I have an Infant version already, so I was happy to see this designer has added additional sizes up through Adult. I actually know a grown person who would willingly wear this. It would be cute to add elf ears on the sides, too, if you want an extra bit of whimsy.
