Pixie Hat

Apparently I just love hats!  This one was fast and easy and I love the flower decoration.  I'm not sure whose pattern this originally was, it isn't mine, though I wish I could take credit for it. I bought a CD on EBay of knitting patterns, and it turned out it was just a bunch of patterns someone had scanned.  Not sure of the legality of it all, but since it is already out there I'm going to share it.  This one I've named the Pixie Hat.




Pixie hat

I'm really not sure on the size, I'm thinking 6-9 months.  It should fit a baby with head about 15" around.

With a 4mm needle cast on 65 stitches in color A.  Work in garter stitch for 6 rows.  Cut thread

With a 5mm needle and color B knit in stockinette stitch until hat measures 11 cm, ending with a WS row.

Shape top:
(K6, K2tog) 8 times, K1 (57 stitches)
(K5, K2tog) 8 times, K1 (49)
(K4, K2tog) 8 times, K1 (41)
(K3, K2tog) 8 times, K1 (33)
(K2, K2tog) 8 times, K1, (25)
(K1, K2tog) 8 times, KI (17)
(K2tog) 8 times, K1 (9)
work 1 row

Cut yarn and thread through remaining 9 stitches.  Pull tight and sew up back.


Flowers

Cast on 57 sts on 4mm needles and yarn A.
Row 1: purl
Break yarn and join in yarn C (a third color, or whatever you would like.  I just used the two colours I had used in the hat)
Row 2: K2 *K1 and slip this st back onto left needle, lift the next 8 sts on left needle over this stitch and off needle, (yfwd) twice, K first stitch again, K2, rep from * to end.
Row 3: K1 *P2tog, (K1, K1 tbl) into double (yfwd) of previous row, P1, rep from * to last stitch, K1
Row 4: knit
Break yarn and thread through remaining stitches.  Pull of tight and fasten off securely.  Join row end and edges.

Make another flower using yarn A throughout.  Lay this on top of other flower and attach centre of both flowers to hat as in photograph.

  1. That is lovely! Pink and white are always a great colour combination.

I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
