This knitting pattern is in English.
The Christmas Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up on circular needles and double pointed needles (or using the magic loop technique with a longer cable circular needle) towards the point. A casing is made along the lower edge, with a wide elastic on the inside, which insures a good fit regardless of the size of the child’s head. Lastly, a small tassel is built and then sewn on the point of the hat.
