This is an EASY back-and-forth knitting pattern for making this adorable gnome chin strap hat yourself! (Think! Who do you know that's a knitter?) Actually, with all the videos on YouTube, there's no excuse for not learning any more!

Instructions are given for knitting the hat in 6 sizes:
Preemie, 4.5 to 6.5 lbs.
Newborn, 6.5 to 10 lbs.
3 to 6 months
6 to 12 months
4 to 6 years

I specialize in clear, thorough instructions, and coaching is included!

Many thanks to Bethany Tyler for permission to use her photograph of the plum colored hat. She sells this very hat at, so if you are not sure about knitting or just buying the hat, be sure to check with her.

Thanks also to Shannon Bower for her amazing photograph of the red hat, and her example of an enterprising young photographer. She says:
"The gnome hat is one of my absolute favs! That red one was made with angora bamboo yarn and is the softest thing ever! I can't knit but my sister is a true beginner and she was able to make this for me with absolutely no problem. She said your instructions are amazing."

The other photo is by Adia Speer, with her own dear niece as the subject. Delightful! See more of Adia's work at
