Seriously Chunky Choc Orange Santa Hat

If you are like us and like making gifts for colleagues/friends/kid’s teachers but always leave it to the last minute then this pattern is absolutely for you! This chocolate orange cover works up in less than half an hour and is super easy to make!

We have used Cygnet Seriously Chunky Metallics in Lithium and White Ice in these pictures and we love the gorgeous shine that this range of yarn has. The hats can also be worked in the standard Seriously Chunky range. 

Both ranges of yarn can be purchased in our online store here

We had lots of fun writing up this pattern for you and we hope you have just as much fun making it.

Happy hooking!
