Tiny Owl Knits share the story of her Enchanted Tree Hat..."what? did that light just go ON? the wee magic elves must be home! i just knew this tree hat was enchanted.

pull the green tassel and the light goes on pull the brown tassel and the light goes off!  no batteries i promise. its a simple i-cord woven through the tree trunk with
a yellow patch, so when you pull the light switches, the i-cord slides back and forth to show a “light” going on and off!  (the whole light switch rigamaroo is really optional, you can just embroider a small yellow light if you’d like the elves to stay home.)

Let’s get technical!
Start here with the pattern notes:
Hat is knitted in the round on circular needles. The tree & stars are knitted using a chart & stranded method. The light switch is optional! You could just embroider a little light in the trunk so the elves are always at home.

Size: One size adult average 22” head.

Finished measurements:
11 inches wide x 9.5 inches high measured flat.

Yarns used: Sport weight yarn such as:
MC: Brown Sheep, Nature Spun Sport, 50 g - 184 yds - 168 m, 100% wool. 1 ball each in the following colors:
MC: Ash 720S, (this is the greyish color)
CC1: Butterscotch 124S, (this is the treetop color)
CC2: Storm 114S, (this is the tree trunk color)
CC3: You’ll need 3-4 yards of yellow for the enchanted light. Try using a mini skein, embroidery wool, or I used Knit Picks Palette, Mustard 0633 and held it doubled.

Tension/gauge: Work 22 sts and 28 rows to measure 4 x 4” in St stitch using US 6 or 4 mm needles with sport weight yarn. NOTE: this is sport weight yarn but I used bigger needles to get DK gauge. Use needles necessary for you to get this gauge ok?
