This year was going to be the first christmas for my niece Gio...and I wanted to get her delivered something special and quite festive!!
I went shopping for baby festive clothes, got her a snowman jumper and some santa trousers..but I was willing to add a handmade touch... so I started looking for free baby patterns of elf hats or santa ones....
..when I came across this lovely simple long tail stripy hat pattern on A lemon dropp life blog ! I immediately felt in love with it! It was shown in red and white, and so I realized it.
I found it nicely festive but at the same time easy to wear all over the winter :)
The pattern shown on the blog is very easy to follow, almost completely based on half double crochet stitches with a cute pom pom at the very end!
I have sent a box to my niece to Italy and I can't wait to receive pictures of baby Gio wearing the stripy hat :)
Taking the occasion to wish everyone lovely holidays, hope you enjoy the link to the pattern and try it out as it's very fast and easy to make!
