Something else I got out of it was quality time with Safety Cone, contemplating his winter wear (it’s important!). Tired of feeling so Halloweeny with his perpetual orange “outfit,” he was determined to add a little holiday pizzazz! So, I made him a Santa Claus Hat! You can buy the Santa Claus Safety Cone OR you can crochet him yourself! The Safety Cone pattern is here and the Santa Claus hat pattern is after the jump. Also, check him out in an ear flap hat, of which he is really happy about, despite not having ears. “Mommy Alicia, style, not function.” Excusez-moi, Snow-Proof Safety Cone!

  • Step 1

    With red yarn, ch 11 and join. (do not ch 1 and no joining after this round).
    Sc for 1 round.
    Sc, making 2 decreases in this round, one in the middle and one at end.
    Sc for 1 round.
    Sc, making 1 decrease in the middle.
    Sc for 1 round.
    Sc, making 1 decrease at the end.
    Sc for 1 round.
    Sc, making 1 decrease in the middle.
    Decrease, sc, decrease, sc, decrease and join. Finish off.

    With boucle yarn, join along the opening (bottom) of the hat. Make 2 sc in each free loop around. Finish off, but leave an 8-inch tail. With tapestry needle, tack down the boucle yarn to hat.

    With boucle yarn again, join along the top of the hat. This part is a little free-form: make multiple sc in the few stitches left up there and keep going around until you can’t see red sticking out on the top and it starts to resemble a little ball. Finish off leaving a long tail again and sew down with the tapestry needle to form it a bit more.

    Bend the hat to give it the curve. Or you could even sew it down a little to give it a permanent bending look.
