The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder and before we know it, Christmas will
be upon us! To help kickstart the festive vibes, I've designed a luxury version of the good 'ole Santa Hat and the pattern is open for test knitting by anyone who wants to give it a go.

The test knit is now closed. Pattern launch 27th October 2022

About the test-knit process

  • The English test pattern will be available for free download in PDF format from now until midnight 20th October 2022  (GMT).
  • To download the pattern, you will be asked for a name, address and email address, after which you will receive an e-mail with a download link. Note that I will not contact you unnecessarily during or after the test-knit process.
  • You are welcome to e-mail me at during the test-knit process if you have questions about the pattern, or if you think you have found a mistake. 
  • The test knit ends at midnight 25th October 2022 (GMT). 

About the pattern

  • The pattern is graded in five sizes to fit a head circumference ranging from 49-61 cm [19.25-24 inches].
  • For best results, measure the head circumference of the intended recipient before you choose the hat size.
  • The stated yarn amounts are estimates, and the exact amount used will vary depending on the yarn type used.
  • See below for details about voluntary test-knit feedback.

Submit voluntary feedback and help to make the pattern great!

Although the pattern has been checked many times, human errors may occur and these can be caught during the test-knit process. Your feedback may also help me to improve the wording in the pattern to make it useful to knitters on all experience levels.

Anyone who wishes to provide feedback is welcome to do so by e-mail at support@twistedknitwear.comPlease let me know:

  • which size you have knitted
  • how the hat fits the recipient
  • any comments you have to the wording and overall instructions

As a thank-you for feedback, I will e-mail you with a copy of the finalised pattern once it is published.  

Anyone who wishes to share feedback and post photos of the finished hat on Instagram (using #goodoldsantahat and #twistedknitwear) or Ravelry (using the Ravelry test code: TEST-TK-7KCX4T) will also receive a coupon entitling them to choose one of previous patterns free of charge. Please e-mail me at to ask for your unique coupon code.

Please note that the deadline for feedback is midnight 25th October (GMT).

Thank you for stopping by 🙂
