Nissehuen knitting pattern, by Eddie's Room

In Scandinavia there is a mythical creature called a nisse or a tomte. A nisse is an elf-like smaller person with a red woolen cap which in Denmark is usually a pointy hat. Christmas is coming up and I wanted to make one of these hats for my daughter and the rest of the family.

I hope you enjoy knitting this pattern and I am looking forward to seeing your versions of it 🙂
