Crochet Santa Hat

Tutor: Lucy Reeve
Length: 3 hours
Max Learners: 6

With Christmas just around the corner why not have a go at making one of these lovely Santa hats to wear for all of your festive activities. We will be working with skills which can be used to make all sorts of hats, but this one is a special one for the festive season!

Who Is This Course For?

The course is suitable for those aged 14 and over who have either completed our Beginners’ Crochet course or are proficient in chain and double crochet. There will be just 6 learners on this course to ensure that you get lots of help from your tutor to create your festive Santa hat.


We will start by creating the chunky band at the base of the hat, ensuring that it fits your head circumference, we will do this using double crochet in the back loop to create a lovely ridge effect. We will then move on to using treble crochet stiches to work up the main section and your lovely tutor will work with you on how to decrease these to create a taper to shape your hat. Your Santa hat will then be finished with a lovely oversized pompom. 

What Should I Bring With Me? 

Just bring yourself as you will receive everything that you need to make your Santa hat. We will be working with chunky yarn, so if you would like to bring your favourite 6mm hook please feel free although your tutor will also have plenty.

What Do I Take Home?

All of the skills that you learned, your finished Santa hat, the remaining wool from two balls of chunky yarn and your pattern in order to create many more awesome Santa Hats for the whole family!

Special Instructions

We will be providing you with 2 balls of Stylecraft Chunky to create your Santa hat in cream and red, however if you would prefer to be Santa’s little helper and create an Elf hat, please request cream and green at the booking stage!
