I made this for my 5 month old niece for Christmas, she looked super cute in it!





I did follow a pattern, it's a free one I found online here.
http://www.oodles-4-noodles.com/2011/03/long-tailed-baby-elf-hat-tutorial.html

But I made it using DK and a 4mm hook, crocheted in a spiral rather than in rows, and used htr (uk) instead of dc (usa) - so it's a loose interpretation!  I wound the end of the hat into a spiral and sewed it together instead of using a pompom.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I went with self striping yarn in blues, red and white, which is a bit winter-y, I didn't want it to be soo Christmassy that she would only be able to wear it for one day, if that makes sense.
