Long-Tail Elf Crochet Hat Free Pattern in Teen/Adult Size

There are lots of smaller sizes of crochet long-tail elf hats floating around the web, but not very many adult size. Here is one that I worked up that will fit an adult head 22-24″.  This pattern is written in US terms. This hat works up nicer if you know how to do the Magic Circle technique and how to change colors in the last stitch of the previous color row. Enjoy!
