Last week I made 20 santa hats, they were to fit the bears I dressed a few months ago
I used polar fleece and a zig zag stitch (for a bit of stretch)
And made the pompoms out of white yarn
I'll upload the pattern soon but if you are desperate to make your own in the mean time - it was 2 triangles in red and 1 rectangle (folded in half) in white
I liked how the fleece was nice and floppy, just like a santa hat should be.
I didn't get a picture of all 20 before they left the house
