(Very belated) Christmas tree beanie

Hey, all! I finished this project during the holidays, as the title implies, but I've been once again procrastinating and just now got around to posting about it. Christmas might be over, but that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy a nice holiday project ;)

(Apologies for the mediocre photo quality, it was way too bright in my room when I took these.)

I spent all of December watching the Yogscast charity livestreams, and everyone kept wearing these adorable Christmas tree hats. I loved them so much that I couldn't resist trying to knit one for my very own. The livestreams were perfect to knit to as well!

I completely improvised the pattern, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out (even though I wish I had used a less soft acrylic yarn so the beanie wasn't so droopy. On the plus side, though, it's super comfy). It's knitted on straight needles and sewed up at the back, and the star is crocheted and stuffed so it's all puffy and squishy :D

I'm thinking about maybe writing up a pattern for this, but it's still a while until next Christmas, so we'll see.


  1. Wonderful! Love the star especially :). I would certainly give this hat a go if you feel inclined to post the pattern. I can't knit to save my life but crochet is something I'm getting better at.

  2. please tell m you have written the pattern for this adorable hat. I have been hunting every where for pattern like this!!!!

    1. I actually have! I was planning on releasing it way earlier, but life happened, so it should be posted within the next couple of days!
