Easy Santa Hat with Beard

By:

Mrs. Claus is always on the lookout for crochet hat patterns around this time of year. Her husband requested an Easy Santa Hat complete with a special pattern to keep the snow off his beard. Being the clever woman she is, Mrs. Claus created this hat that you can create for your own Kris Kringle. This free crochet hat pattern is comical, whimsical, and all-around fun. Create an Easy Santa Hat with Beard for a loved one to wear this holiday, and it will be remembered for a lifetime.
