Knit a fun beanie hat for toddlers with Tracey Todhunter's easy knitting pattern

We just love this Christmas knitting pattern made from different colours of DK yarn. It is a gorgeous festive gift for a baby’s first Christmas. Designer Tracey has made it at 38cm in circumference, which can fit a large newborn, but it is stretchy enough to fit a toddler's head, as shown here. This pattern is made using simple stripes and basic shaping to create a classic beanie hat. The ears and antlers are worked separately and sewn on for the reindeer effect.
