Mini Hat Advent Calendar Tutorial

I have posted some ideas before for Advent Calendars here is a tutorial for one which is the most adorable the mini hat calendar. You can give this a go even if you have not ever casted a stitch!! It is extremely easy and can be done in an afternoon.

What you will need:

  • Festive colored wool (enough for 24 hats)
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • 4mm knitting needles 
  • Ribbon or brown rope for hanging

{Beginners guide}

Make a nice cup of tea and curl up by the fireplace.
Cast on 28 stitches using double knitting yarn.
To start knit two rows or for a rib knit 1 purl 1.
Than starting with a knit row work in stocking stitch for 12 rows.
When you are ready for the next row knit two together to the end.
When ready cut off the thread leaving an approximately 30 cm long thread.
Cut the end of the line through a sewing needle than run it through the loops to remove the sewing needle.
Sew down  to finish the hat to make it more cute sew a small bobble on the top.
When you are ready with the hats hang them with a small bit of leftover yarn and hang your hats. Don't forget to fill them with sweets and for the healthier option nuts and dries fruits!!!!
