Preemie Newborn Santa Belt Buckle Hat Crochet Pattern
For this pattern I wanted a Santa, but I didn’t want the traditional Santa hat. (Don’t worry, I’ll get to that later on.) I think this hat represents Santa in a great new light! It really shows off his suit.
The Preemie/Newborn Santa Belt Buckle Hat uses worsted weight yarn and a G-6 (4.00 mm) crochet hook. Of you’re looking to expand from easy to intermediate. To add to the cuteness, you could even add a small white pom pom on top! I’d love to see how you customize this hat to your own!
This is the traditional Preemie/Newborn Santa Hat if you would prefer that instead.
