Free Santa Hat Knitting Pattern by blogger Gina Michele
     It wouldn't feel like Christmas around here on the blog unless I included a knitting pattern for a Santa Hat! These hats are great for family holiday photos. As you can see, we've been having a lot of fun with them =) The design is pretty straightforward and thanks to the super bulky and yarn and big needles, these knit up fast. Perfect for the busy holiday season!
