HERE IT IS
 THE PERFECT CROCHET HAT PATTERN 
FOR THE LONG TAIL and SHORT TAIL ELF


LOLLIPOP is the name of this crochet hat pattern, so called, because I made the pink long tail first and I thought it looked just like a lollipop!

You can make this hat with organic cotton yarn or organic wool/cotton blends.

For the long tail pink, blue, and santa hats I used Bendigo Cotton 8ply which you can also find available in smaller balls under the brand name of Heirloom Cotton 8ply.

The green elf hat I made using Rowan Belle Organic Wool Cotton DK for the main colour (body of hat) and James C. Brett Pure Merino DK for the contrast texture, pom pom and brim of hat.
