stuff your stockings: super cute crochet hat

A few years ago I attempted to teach myself to crochet.  I managed to make a very small square before I gave up.  After seeing these sweet little Sesame Street hats that Michell linked up to the stocking stuffer share-along page, I'm thinking that I may need to drag out my crochet supplies and start learning again. 

Michell has a very cute stocking stuffer to share with you today.  And . . . she's even giving you the chance to make it OR win it!  Woo hoo! 

I'm so excited to have the pleasure to do my FIRST guess post.

Hi, I'm Michell
and you can find me here:

Last year at 39 I had a baby, quit my Flight Attendant job and picked up my crochet hook that I forgot about for the last 15 years.

I love making  stuff......especially hats for my son (who at the moment HATES wearing hats.)

I share lots of tutorials on my blog....and here's another one I am excited to share...... just in time for Christmas...
Isn't this Santa Hat the CUTEST??
Let's Make one!!

Materials
Size I/5.5 mm crochet hook
Your Favorite RED 4 ply yarn
Your Favorite White Fur
Tapestry Needle for attaching the pom pom

Here are instructions for this Santa Hat Newborn to Adult Sizes:
Chain 3, Join.
Round 1: Work 6 SC through the chain. (6 SC total) Mark the first stitch with a yarn marker. Do not join.
Round 2-3: The first single crochet will be worked right in the top of the previous single crochet, working the cap in a continual round. Work 1 SC through each stitch. (6 SC total)
Round 4: Work 2 SC in each stitch. (12 SC total)
Round 5-9: Work 1 SC in each stitch around. (12 SC total)
Round 10: *Work 1 SC in each of the next 2 Stitches, work 2 SC in the next stitch. Continue around from *. (16 SC total)

This is the first place that you can stop increasing and continue on for the length of the cap. The will fit a newborn size head 12"-13" inches.

Continue for the length of the cap. This will fit an adult size head 22"-24".

To end, skip 1 stitch, slip stitch in the next stitch. Cut the yarn and pull the tail through.

Edging
Round 1: Work a round of single crochet with white fur around. Join with the beginning stitch
Round 2: Work 1 double crochet in each single crochet around.  Join with the beginning stitch.
Round 3: Work 1 single crochet in each stitch around. Join with the beginning stitch.

Pom-Pom
There are a million ways to make a pom-pom. Just search YouTube and you will see what I mean....

Here is my favorite simple way:
1. Wrap yarn around 2 or 3 fingers about 50 times.
2. Slip off fingers and tie a tight knot around middle.
3. Cut loops, trim and fluff

Use yarn needle to attach pom-pom to hat.

That was so FUN....let's give one of my hats away!

And how about adding some more illustrations? No offence, text is really great. Just as I know visitors acquire info much more effective when they see certain useful images.
