Tree Decoration Hats ~ Designed by Zoe Dore

Zoe is fourteen, this is her first project after learning the basics of knitting.

Zoe dedicates this hat pattern to her Auntie Raine, who taught her to knit and adapted Jo’s Christmas Tree pattern.
Zoe also dedicates this pattern to Jo for allowing her Auntie Raine to adapt the pattern, Thank you.

Making Up:
Thread a sewing needing and slip needle into first chain stitch to form a loop.

This pattern makes a nice Innocent bottle topper and very recyclable. Zoe used multicoloured wool, and did not need to decorate. You can use plain wool and decorate with buttons, ribbon, bows, bell and beads. Have fun.
