Last Christmas I had great fun creating little knitted covers/cosies for Chocolate Oranges. I started with the Christmas Pudding and now here’s one for a Santa Hat. Is it Christmas without a Chocolate Orange?
Pattern: Chocolate Orange Santa Hat by Marianna’s Lazy Daisy Days
Needles: 3.5mm on the pattern, I think I used a 4mm instead.
Yarn: White and Red (I’ve used Stylecraft Special in Lipstick (Red) and White. (Could definitely be made up from odd scraps rather than buying whole new balls I’m sure!)
If you can knit and k2tog then it’s definitely a great place to start for something Christmassy if you’re a beginner. You can also find more of Marianna’s Christmas Crafts over on her blog here (also her knitting patterns are there as well as on Ravelry here).
