The Hurry Up Holiday Hat is the second and last pattern in the 2015 Holiday Mini Crochet-Along!
The Hurry Up Holiday Hat takes just one skein of Lion Brand Hometown USA, and works up in less than an hour – with a little practice, I can now do one in under 45 minutes! And it’s a perfect match to the Hurry Up Holiday Cowl.

And now you have a matching Hurry Up Holiday set! These patterns were designed with the Hometown USA Tweed in mind – which come in balls of 64 yards. But the Solids are longer, so they are a great option if you want to upsize a bit while still using just one skein per piece! If you do have extras, this hat would also look fantastic with a pompom!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this mini CAL here on Moogly – Happy holidays all!
