This cute Christmas pudding hat is knitted in an Aran weight yarn including the holly and berries. The brandy sauce part of the pudding is knitted separately on larger needles and laid over the top of the hat and stitched down. The fruit bobbles are made in a black yarn knotted into French knots and stitched onto the bottom part of the pudding. The small version and larger version are made using the same pattern but changing the needle sizes as instructed.
