Crochet Santa Suit Hat

Who doesn't need a little HO HO HO?  My son saw something similar to this and asked me if I could make him one.  I hope he likes it.  He still doesn't know that it is finished, or that I even started it.  I would give it to him for Christmas, but then he wouldn't be able to wear it until next year.  I hope you like the new hat as much as my son!

  5. How about adult size??

    1. Just continue to increase until the crown is as large as you need it to fit an adult size head (roughly 21"-22" around). You'll find that it won't be too far off the toddler hat so adjusting the "belt" down a row or two (or few) won't be too difficult.
      Good luck.
