This free crochet Santa Hat pattern is perfect for Christmas and its easy to make! The free pattern is beginner friendly, crocheted from the bottom to the top in one piece and available in sizes baby, toddler, child, teen and adult.

Darla and Drew wanted Crochet Santa Hats that they could wear outside. I designed my free crochet Santa Hat Pattern with Medium Weight Yarn [4] and it is perfect for our colder winter weather in Canada.

This crochet Santa Hat pattern is designed using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in 2 colors. You can easily substitute a similar Medium / Worsted Weight Yarn for this pattern. The sturdy construction of this hat makes it durable for winter temperatures.

QUICK TIP: Lighter Medium Weight Yarns like Red Heart Soft, or Caron Simply Soft do not substitute well for this design. Since they have a less dense strand of yarn, they will result in a smaller hats than those specified in the directions below.

I have sized this pattern to fit a variety of head sizes so you can make hats for the whole family. The full written pattern for Santa hats for babies to Santa hats for adults is included below. I also have a crochet Santa Hat pattern for a adult large head size available (for free). Get the Santa Claus Hat for Dad here. For the other sizes please continue to my instructions below.

Since the crochet Santa Hat length is extended to be a “Santa Hat Style” I combined similar head circumferences; such as toddler and child into one pattern because, the only difference for some hat sizes is the height of the finished hat; the head circumference itself does not change, only the hat height from the forehead to the crown. Toddler and Child is one such example.

To learn how to crochet a hat that fits be sure to check out my free guide: Learn How To Crochet A Beanie that Fits!

All sizes are available as free patterns. These hats are crocheted from the bottom-up and you do not need to know how to use a magic ring for this project! I believe a confident beginner would be able to crochet this Christmas hat.

Notes:

  • leave a 10 inch tail of yarn at the beginning of the band (aka as the brim) section to allow you to seam the band closed once you have completed it
  • do not count the sl st as a stitch unless specified
  • you skip over the ch 2 to work into the first dc of the round BUT you still count the ch 2 as a st (you just do not work into it).
  • You may substitute a sl st and ch 2 to join for the standing double crochet stitch.

Toddler Santa Hat Pattern
Child Crochet Santa Hat Pattern

To Fit: 3-10 years. 20 inch head circumference (finished hat circumference is 14.5 inches – it will stretch approximately 6 inches)

NOTE: Since the crochet Santa Hat length is extended to be a “Santa Style” hat I combined similar head circumferences; such as toddler and child into one pattern. Why? Well because, the only difference for some hat sizes is the height of the finished hat – the head circumference itself does not change. Toddler and Child is one such example.

  1. I have yet to make a Santa Hat. Maybe this will be the year. I love how you’ve given many sizes and the link to get to the size desired easily. Thank you for the tip about the yarn to not use.

  2. Hi,
    Please can i just say that this hat is fabulous and my friend who is a postman wants it for work, just one question do i turn at the end of each row or is it a “continued” row like working round and round and not turning so there is no end of the row, does that make sense to you? thank you for the pattern xx

  3. Hi Marsha, I made the child size hat for my son. It used less than 1 ball of red heart super saver in red. I do not have the specific yardages for the other sizes. None of them use more than 1 ball of the red yarn. All the best, Rhondda

  4. thank you, meant to hit 5 stars but it can’t be changed now.

  5. Im not finding the printer friendly icon anywhere. Please advise.

  6. Hi Corinne 🙂 Of course! The PrinterFriendly button is located at the bottom of every post 🙂 You can save a pdf copy or print a copy and you can remove all the images if you want to too! All the best, Rhondda

  7. Hi Rhonda,

    Is there a printer friendly version of this pattern?

    Thank you
