Holiday Tip #1

 

Hat on a tree

My adaptation of an elf hat.

 

Use a hat as a tree topper.

If you have pets or small children and you’re just not willing to risk great-grandma’s angel or that blown glass star, consider using a winter hat as a tree topper.  You could use a store bought Santa or elf hat, or you could simply recycle one of the hubby’s old ski hats.  I couldn’t find anything locally that thrilled me, so I dug into my stash pile and crocheted a nifty striped elf hat.  I was in a big hurry and so didn’t want to muck about with making my own pattern.  A google search brought me to the same place it inevitably does, when I search for such things: It took me to Kim Guzman’s site.  Kim is a friend and one of the most talented designers out there.  Her hat pattern is free, quick, and easy enough for beginners.  While you’re there, check out some more of her patterns.  You won’t regret it.  (And I swear the pom-pom didn’t look that ratty before the wind lashed at it.)
