Santa Needs Some Elves!

What is cuter than a crochet elf hat pattern? A crochet elf hat pattern with little pointy ears, of course!

I tend to be kind of literal at times, so when I set out to create a free crochet elf hat pattern, I wanted to include all the details that make elves elf-y.

The crochet elf ears went through a few iterations before I felt like I had gotten them right. Some looked like a blob of gum stuck to a shoe, others were too Yoda-like and some, quite frankly, looked like a different body part that would not be appropriate to sew onto a child’s hat.

The final ears, though, are pretty darn charming. And each time my three-year-old wears this hat, the ears get a little more adorable. I think there’s something about how they get wrestled about when she’s putting the hat on (often backward) that has relaxed them into perfection.

I love that everywhere we’ve gone this fall, my kids look like they’re on work release from Santa’s workshop. (And of course, no elf would be complete without a sidekick in a crochet snowman hat.) Having these crochet elf hats around hasn’t helped with the “Is it Christmas yeeeeet?” questions around our house.

A Creative Family Christmas Photo Idea

While my kids just love feeling like they’re part of Santa’s crew when they play outside in the Colorado cold, I also love the idea of dressing up your whole family in crochet elf hats for your Christmas card photo.

Wouldn’t a family of elves make for a charming family Christmas card? Since this free crochet elf hat pattern comes in sizes newborn, baby, toddler, child, teen and adult, no elf has to be left behind this holiday season.

This free long tail crochet elf hat pattern with ears is made with Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn.

The Perfect Yarn for a Long Tail Crochet Elf Hat

I used Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice yarn for this free crochet elf hat pattern for a few reasons:

• The colors are vivid and perfect for a long tail, dramatic crochet elf hat. (See them all here!)

Vanna’s Choice is worsted weight, so it’s pretty fast to work with and also easy to substitute if it’s not available in your neck of the woods.

• It’s machine washable for all the messy elves out there. Working in Santa’s workshop can be a dirty job, you know.

A Quick Crochet Christmas Gift

If you’re like me and it’s the very last minute and you’re searching for a quick crochet Christmas gift idea, look no further! This crochet elf hat can be made in a few hours thanks to the quick double crochet stitches. You’ll begin at the very tip top of the long tail working in the round and crochet your way down to the brim of the hat, WITHOUT cutting your yarn to switch colors for the stripes.

Once you get the hang of this easy pattern, I know you’ll want to elf-up everyone on your Christmas list!

Explanation:
Whether you have upcoming Christmas photos or are planning a trip to the North Pole, this festive elf hat is a must for each member of the family. Worked from the top down with very simple increases, the hat grows quickly and involves very little seaming. Tie a jingle bell to the pom pom to add a little Christmas magic for the smallest elves.

Written in sizes newborn-adult, so no elf needs to be left behind this Christmas season.

Supplies:
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice (Weight: 4/medium – 170 yds, 3.5 oz)
– Color A: Cranberry (#860-180)
– Color B: White (#860-100)
– Color C: Beige (#860-123) or color to match skin tone (see suggestions below)
• Tapestry needle
• Size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook
Pom pom maker or piece of cardboard
• Jingle bell (optional)

Sizes / Circumference of Actual Head:
0-6 Months – 14-15” (Note: Do not leave infants unsupervised when wearing.)
6-12 Months – 15-16” (Note: Do not leave infants unsupervised when wearing.)
Toddler – 16-18”
Child – 18-20”
Tween – 20-22”
Adult – 22-24”

For most accurate sizing, measure recipient’s head circumference and choose size accordingly. When meeting gauge, the finished hat will fit loosely when recipient is on the smaller end of the size range. If a more snug fit is desired, size down.

Gauge:
14 dc = 4”

8 rows = just over 4”

Abbreviations and Glossary (US Terms):
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
RS – right side
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
st(s) – stitch(es)
tr – treble crochet
WS – wrong side

Overall Pattern + Sizing Notes:
• When matching skin tone for elf ears, a few other colors to try include:
Lion Brand Vanna’s ChoiceChocolate (#860-126)
– Lion Brand DIYarnCamel (#205-124)

• Pattern is worked from the top down in one piece.

• To change colors between rows, work the final yarn over of the last dc of the row with the new color. Pattern is written with the assumption that the last dc and final sl st before a color change row will be worked this way.

• Do not cut yarn after color changes. Instead, simply keep it attached in inside of hat. Reference note at beginning of each round for which color yarn is used.

• For a less noticeable join, work ch-3 at beginning of each row fairly tightly. This ch-3 counts as a dc throughout.

FINISHING

With RS of hat facing out, fold over bottom Color A brim toward the outside of hat until Color A section is folded in half. Using a tapestry needle and attached yarn tail, whip stitch around hat to secure. (See photo in blog post above.)

Using tapestry needle and skin-colored yarn, tack down top inner edge of both ears.

Learn how to crochet a santa's helper elf hat with adorable pointy ears in this tutorial featuring Lion Brand Yarn.

For best ear placement on hat, attach them in the same position the wearer’s real ears will be. (This means there is slightly less room between the ears in the back of the hat than in the front.) Let the lobes hang below the Color A cuff a bit. With skin-colored yarn, sew ears onto hat using a whip stitch.

Create a pom-pom, tie jingle bell inside it if desired. (Avoid adding a jingle bell if the recipient is under 3-years-old due to risk of choking.) Attach pom-pom to the top of hat. Here’s a DIY pom-pom tutorial if you need help.

    Cute hat pattern. I have been knitting a hat for a gift for the last few days – almost done with it. Pinned the pattern to my crochet board.

            I’m so sorry, Margaret! This was the first crochet pattern I wrote and I was very much still getting the hang of it. I actually have spent today re-writing it so it will be clearer for everyone and I hope to re-publish in the next week. In the mean time, here’s what it should say:
            Round 19: (2 DC in first stitch, DC in next 7 stitches) repeat around, attach red, join using red, chain 2 (54 DC total)

            Rounds 20-24 (worked in red): DC in each stitch around, join, chain 2 (54 DC total)

            Rounds 20-24 are the red section of the hat. I hope this is helpful and thanks for bringing this mistake to my attention!

    Hi,
    I love this elf hat. It is April and I am already planning my Christmas card????. I am just a beginner, and have the basics down. I am although a visual learner and still trying to understand when I read patterns. I have a question that might be silly but I just want to be sure I am doing it correctly. When it says (2DC in first stitch, DC in next 5 stitches) repeat around” it means to me put 2 double crochets in the first stitch and 1 double crochet all the way around. I just don’t understand what DC in next 5 stitches means. Thanks for any help you can give me.

      Hey Erin,

      I love that you’re already crocheting for Christmas! It’s snowing here in CO today and it’s making me ready to decorate for xmas all over again 🙂

      Here’s what you do for that part of the pattern:
      Put 2 DC stitches in the first stitch of the round.
      In each of the next five DC stitches of that round, put 1 DC stitch. (So 1 stitch per stitch.)
      Then you’ll repeat this pattern all the way around the row. So 2 DC in one stitch, 1 DC in each of the next five stitches, 2 DC…
      Written out visually, it would look something like, 2 DC, DC, DC, DC, DC, DC, 2 DC, DC, DC, DC, DC, DC (repeating around)

      Let me know if that makes sense. I’m happy to help with anything else you need clarified. Good for you for starting to read patterns! I’d love to see a pic when you’re finished 🙂

    Hi, I am having troubles understanding the pattern, what do you have to do with the 2 stiches you chain? You just join them in the round? And if you keep chaining and double crocheting, you end up with more than 6DC in the first 5 rounds???

      Hey Vivi,

      I’m not sure I’m totally understanding your question, but if you’re referencing the two chains at the beginning of each round, they are there to serve as the first double crochet of the round to essentially create a “step up” for the next round.

      Do that make sense?

      I’m so glad you caught that! Thank you for your crochet proof reading skills! It should work like this: after row 18 you’re done increasing. Switch to red yarn and work rows 19-24 in red by just DCing in each stitch. I’ve emailed you the updated pdf, but please just let me know if you have any questions. Thanks so much for catching that error. Merry Christmas in September! 🙂

      Great catch, Sarah! You’re right. Are you crocheting the newborn size? (The one that’s in the blog post?) That size is a bit smaller and therefore has a different number of stripes than the toddler size, which is pictured.

      Does that clear things up? Let me know if not!

      October 24, 2016 at 10:56 pm

      Hey Dana,

      It might be helpful to look at the image of the ears as closely as possible. Essentially, you’re just attaching the yarn in the middle of the inside of the ear so that you can sc a small curve on the surface of the ear. It’s meant to replicate the inner “C” shape of your ear. Does that make any sense at all? 🙂

      Please let me know if not. I’m happy to explain it another way.

    Hello Jess,
    I love the hat, and would like to make several for my cousins’ toddlers for Christmas.
    Did you happen to have a gauge for this pattern?
    I reduced down to a 4.25mm hook, but the hat’s are coming out too large (I’m aiming for a 18″ circumference). I must be using thicker yarn, or a looser DC (or both).
    Thanks,

      I’m sorry it’s taken me a couple of days to measure this for you! The gauge is 7 dc = 2″ and 3.5 rows = 2″. I just added it to the pattern as well. How does that compare to what you’re getting? Also, the fact that you’re referencing your hook size in mm makes me wonder if you’re in the UK? This pattern is written in US terms–just clarifying that in case that is the problem! 🙂

    I have the alternate sizes and am reading through the pattern before I start. I am confused because round 7 joins with green and then the next “join” is in round 10 but it says join using white. Then the next join in round 13 says join using green. Should the round 10 join be using white instead of green?

    Reply
    • Jess @ Make and Do Crew
      November 23, 2016 at 9:08 pm

      Hey Karen,

      It alternates ever few rows between white and green. So when it says “join with white,” it’s referring to the fact that you’ll want to slip stitch into the 2nd chain at the beginning of the row using the color of the new section you’re about to start. This makes the seam invisible. So in row 10, you’re joining with white because you’re just about to start a white section.

      Hope that is helpful!

    I’m struggling with round 3.. maybe I’m just reading it wrong but it goes as
    Round 3 Green” Ch 2, dc in first dc, dc in next, (2dc in next dc, dc in next dc) repeat 2 times (9 dc)
    Well with the first 2 dcs plus the first round of the brackets gives a total of 5, to repeat the brackets again it would then give a total of 8.. do I just add another dc in the last dc to make the total of 9?

      Yes! Lol, what I have there doesn’t make much sense does it? I’m not sure what went wrong when I was writing that part of the pattern, but here’s what I’ve updated it to. Let me know if it makes sense to you and thank you so much for pointing that out!

      Round 3 (Green): Ch 2, (2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc) 3 times, join with a sl st to first dc. (9 dc)

    The email password is not working for me. Nothing happens when I put in the password. I have been copying and pasting but the password page is all I get.

      Hey Jeannie,

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble. If the PW page is just refreshing, it means that the PW hasn’t been entered exactly correctly. Perhaps there’s an extra space before or after the password that snuck in when you copied and pasted it.

      Hope that helps!

    I loved this pattern! It was so easy to read and understand. I made several hats for my kid and friend’s kids and they were a big hit. Thank you!

    Made 2 of these for my daughter & friend who were Santa’s helpers at the school PTO craft fair. Had a request to make 4 more for a family that attended the fair. When changing colors, did you cut the yarn or did you carry the yarn over? I started cutting the yarn and using magic knot, but am now wondering if carrying the yarn would be safer. Thanks for sharing your patterns. Love your creativity.

      Hey Alicia,

      I just carry the yarn in the inside of the hat so I have fewer ends to weave in. 🙂

      So glad the pattern has gotten some good use by your daughter and her friend. That sounds adorable!

    I made this hat tonight and will finish it off tomorrow for my almost 3 month old Grandson. The hat was easy but the ears took a few tries! I’m starching the ears a bit to make them a bit stiffer. Will see how it all comes together. Thanks for sharing this pattern!

    I’m planning to make 3 adult hats. How much yarn do you think I’ll need?
    Thanks!

      Hi Patti! If you subscribe to the emails, you will be sent access to the additional sizing information. It will show how much yarn you will need for the adult size. Hope that helps!

    I can’t find the blog post regarding the finishing that shows the section is folded in half at the bottom and you whip stitch secure. Where can I see that photo please
