Day 3 of the Holiday Calendar

19 days till Hanukkah
22 days till Christmas
28 days till the New Year
34 days till 3 Kings Day

Even wee ones need their own Santa hat!

This Sparkly Santa Baby Hat can be purchased within Etsy's Most Favorite Aunt store.

The hat was hand knit by Pam, owner of Most Favorite Aunt. Below Pam shared with me her inspiration to knit this adorable, little hat.

Q. What was your inspiration?
A. I wanted a tasteful twist on the classic Santa hat. I also hate making pom poms.

Q. How long did it take you to make it?
A. about 30 minutes

Q. Did you use any new techniques in the making of it?
A. Not at all. I knit a lot of baby hats, and this is my favorite stitch pattern.

Q. What made you choose the color(s) for it?
A. The burgundy looked much richer than traditional red, and the sparkly fur made a great plush brim.

Q. Do you plan to make any more items similar to this one?
A. There are five of these available in my shop, and I'm out of Wool-Ease, so I think that's good for now.

Q. Did you enjoy making it? Why or why not?
A. Absolutely! Turning on carols, and sitting by the fire with a project in your lap, is great way to get in the Christmas spirit.
