This Free Crochet Pattern is called the Christmas Gift Beanie as it looks like your wearing a Christmas Gift or Present on your head. It is such a cute and inventive idea that just makes me feel all kinds of Christmas feelings. This beanie is not only easy to crochet, but can also be made into any beanie size needed for your or someone else’s head.
As you can see above me and my son are showing off the Christmas Gift Beanie very proudly. As it is made with worsted weighted yarn, it not only feels light, but also keeps you from over-heating, but still keeps you warm and snuggly during the winter weather.
Furthermore, the crochet pattern only uses easy and basic crochet stitches which make this beanie a beginner pattern that makes even the more experienced crocheter happy and jolly.
