Crocheted Santa Dog Hat ♥ 12 Days of DIY

Since getting Lucy (my adorable Pomeranian puppy dog) earlier this year I couldn't wait to start crocheting her sweaters, toys and other accessories. I made her this adorable crocheted Santa hat with a giant pom pom on top so that she be festive and wear during Christmas. This is a super cute DIY project that you can easily whip up in minutes!

This is the best picture I could get of Lucy. She's actually pretty calm when we give her clothes to try on but she wouldn't stay still while I was taking pictures (probably because of the pom pom).

What you need:
- Red and white (or cream) worsted yarn
- I or 5.50 mm Crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- Scissors
- Pom pom maker (optional)

Abbreviations + tips
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
st(s) - stitch(es)
dc - double crochet
dec - decrease
cc - color change

*If something doesn't seem right let me know and I will try to fix the pattern.

Hat (start with white yarn)
- Ch 24 sts, sl st to form circle. Total = 24 sts
- Ch 1, dc 24 sts, sl st and cc to red yarn. Total = 24 sts
- Ch 1, dc 24 sts (x3 times). Total = 24 sts
- Dec 1, sc 1 (x8 times). Total = 16 sts
- Dec 1, sc 1 (x5 times). Total = 11 sts
Cut off and leave long tail for sewing.
Sew in and out each chain and pull to close the hat. Weave in ends.

Strap
Stick your hook on one side of the hat and ch 30 (always test to see if this fits your dog). Pull off the yarn after your 30 ch and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew the remaining strap on the opposite side. Cut off and weave ends.

*I would suggest you to use a tape measure to see how many chains you need for your dog's head.

Now make a white pom pom to place onto of the hat. You can use a pom pom maker like I did or whatever pom pom method you normally use. Attach the pom pom by sewing it on the center of the Santa hat. Done!

Happy Holidays
