Crochet Elf Hats for the Entire Family

Free crochet pattern and video. Six sizes of Christmas Elf hats to crochet.

I think you are going to have so much fun making elf hats for your family this year! If you fancy a little change from the traditional Santa red hats, then these fun elf hats could be just what you need to bring some festive fun to your holidays.  The free crochet pattern is available in 6 different sizes from newborn to adult.

The entire hat portion of this pattern is worked in the back loops only (blo). This creates a ridged texture throughout the hat. Please note that you will always work in the back loops only for this pattern.

There is a beginner-friendly video tutorial available for you to view if you are just learning to crochet or are unsure of reading crochet patterns. If you are an intermediate or advanced level crocheter you will probably not need to view the video tutorial.
