A rather cute Christmas knit, this hat makes a perfect stocking filler! The hat is knitted in the round in reverse stocking stitch, with the sauce knitted separately and stitched in place to give the hat a 3-dimensional feel. Finally the holly and berries are added separately.

To make this knit you need to know how to knit, purl, increase, decrease, slip stitches and yarn over.

The instructions cover five sizes, from baby to adult.

Materials needed: 4 mm (US 6) circular needle, or set of 4 or 5 double-pointed needles; 3.5 mm (US 4) circular needle or set of 4 or 5 double-pointed needles; 4 mm (US 6) straight, single-pointed needles; any DK weight yarn in brown (95 [110, 140, 165, 205] m/100 [120, 150, 180, 220] yds), white (50 [65, 75, 95, 105] m/50 [70, 80, 100, 110) yds], red and green (oddments, <25 m/<25 yds of each); stitch markers; tapestry needle.
