Crochet Mini hat ornament

Sharing is caring!

Crochet mini hat ornaments are the quickest and best stash-busting projects for the holiday season. You can easily use your stash as they use a really small amount of yarn.

All of us have small balls of yarn that can’t be used even to finish one row or round of projects. So, with this mini hat ornament, even the smallest string of yarn can be used. Scroll down for the free pattern, or purchase the AD-FREE PDF HERE.

Why I love the mini hat ornaments

As I mentioned earlier, they are perfect stash-busting projects. And they are quick to make so that you can finish them in less than 30 minutes. All of them can be customized as the granny stitch loves colors.

With the granny stitch, there are no wrong color combinations. In every case, it is highly customizable. If you are in the mood for a Christmas vibe, use the traditional green, red, and white colors. For a more rustic vibe, crochet them in tweed yarn and add a bead on top as a pom pom.

Color lovers can crochet them in vibrant colors to match their personality and holiday decor as well. So, as I said, it is a highly customizable pattern.
