Tiny knitted santa hat

Flattened out the hat measures about 5cm across and 8cm from top to bottom. It sort of bends backwards a bit, but it is stretchable. Attach a loop of yarn to the top of the hat to make it into an ornament :)

Here is what you need if you want to make your own:
* a pair of 3.5mm knitting needles
* small amount of red yarn (wool or acrylic)
* a scrap of white fuzzy or eyelash yarn

Cast on 25 stitches with white
Knit 2 rows
Change to red yarn
Knit 2 rows of stocking stitch, start with a knit row
*K1, decrease (knit 2 stitches together), knit until 3 stitches remain, decrease, k1
Repeat the last two rows until only 4 stitches remain (from * to *)
Change to white yarn
Increase in every stitch (knit front and back of all stitches) - 8 sts
Repeat the last row - 16 sts
Decrease until end - 8 sts
Break yarn, pull end through remaining stitches, pull tight and shape the top into a ball

Sew the hat together with the seam at the back, weave in all ends, and you're done! :)
