Knit Pixie Hat
I couldn’t believe how simple the pattern was for this knit hat. And it’s free!
I love having a big family that give me constant excuses to work with yarn!! My cousin is having a baby and sent me a photo of the most adorable hat to make. Baby knits are literally the best ever, so I was super eager to make it! Unfortunately I don’t know have little kiddos at home to take cute pics of the hat with, so my daughter’s doll will have to suffice.
Now, I’ve crocheted forever but I just started knitting a few years ago (self-taught). I can follow patterns and figure out basic stuff, but I am not skilled enough to look at a photo and know how something knit is constructed. I barely understand how shaping works! So I stared at the photo and was super confused. Then I did what any sane person would do – I searched Google and Pinterest and Instagram until I found a pattern! And guys, once I made it, I couldn’t believe how quick and easy it was!
Here’s the pattern: https://knitting.livejournal.com/75126.html
It was posted almost 20 years ago – these kinds of things just don’t go out of style! I followed the pattern exactly, using Paton’s Kroy sock yarn in Flax. My test knit worked up so quickly that I made a second one on the same day.
I hope you enjoy this pattern! Many, many, many thanks to Ms. Crafty Galore for sharing.
