Mae's Blanket Hat - Two hats in one pattern!



Merry Christmas friends! This post will contain affiliate links. Your support helps me continue to publish free content. Thank you!





Ho Ho Ho! It's almost Christmas! Last year at this time- and I can't believe it's already been a year- I published my first amigurumi pattern. Check out my super cute and quirky Corn Cob Christmas Ornament. It's so adorable! My kids loved seeing it come out of the ornament box this year, they had fun deciding where to place it on the tree.


This year, we continue our season of hats with a special two-in-one blanket hat pattern! Blanket yarn has been around for a little while now. It's super bulky and super fun to work with. Anything you make will work up quick due to the bulk, and be very fluffy, warm and fuzzy. I've got another blanket yarn pattern as well, my luxurious spa wrap.





This hat was designed for a very special girl I know. She loves to wear a hat 24/7 as a source of security and her sensory processing is comforted by soft textures. She feels nice and snug when she can tie the ear flaps under her chin. This hat checks all the boxes for her, and I'm sure, many other people. Who couldn't love the softness of a blanket crocheted into the warmest hat ever?
