Fox and Pine Stitches has an array of holiday-themed knitting patterns for you to choose from, if you’re looking for Santa hats, stocking caps or other projects with a winter theme. I couldn’t decide which ones to share so here’s a whole bunch for you to look through. The best part? The patterns are all free and usually offer a range of sizes so you can stitch them up for the whole family.
We need to start with the super adorable Christmas tree hat, which would be perfect for a newborn photo shoot as shown but is sized for kids and up to adult women. It uses super bulky yarn and you can use little scraps to make the ornaments.
The Santa Pixie Bonnet is a super cute bonnet-style hat for kids aged newborn to 5+ years. It uses worsted weight yarn in two colors.
The Double Pompom Christmas hat is classic red and white, though you can work it in other colors, and uses chunky yarn for quick knitting. Of course the highlight is the pompoms at the top that give the pattern its name. It’s sized from newborns up to women’s size.
Make a Santa stocking cap in worsted weight yarn for everyone in the family (newborn through men), or make it an elf-styled stocking cap with stripes. (There’s a chunky weight version, a super bulky version and a worsted weight version of that one.)
And if you’re looking for holiday-themed beanies, there are lots of options. Check out the Santa hat pattern made in super bulky yarn, or the Santa belt pattern, also in super bulky. Or make a hat with a truck hauling a Christmas tree on it. It’s a worsted weight pattern made in all sizes through adult men, and the colorwork is added with duplicate stitch. (If you love the Christmas tree farm look, there’s a coordinating hot water bottle cover, too.)
