Just the idea of a pixie hat on a cute baby or child's head can bring out the smiles. This one lets you try out a fabulous stitch. The shaping is easy, so it knits up quick. The bottom ribbing and button hole strap is picked up and knit after. Add a fancy or fun button to complete the look.
Instructions included for baby sizes to youth. The smaller sizes ONLY use 1 ball of the lusciously soft Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran yarn.
A quick, beautiful project that makes a great gift!

Such a sweet little girl's hat for the winter months especially when finished with a fancy button or crocheted button. So easy to follow instructions and quick to knit and looks equally good in different colours or multi.

This was so easy and quick to knit up, I actually did 3 over a weekend when I just wanted to be left alone, and see a quick result. I gave all the hats away to friends grandchildren and the kids are actually wearing them :-)

Don't have grandchildren, yet, but this would be my FIRST baby hat and likely the best ever. Clever design, interesting pattern, would not get lost, and would very likely be a hand-me-down. Had to have the pattern "for seed".

I have not made this hat yet but I love it and the pattern is very well written.

I haven't yet started the pattern, but I am excited to begin. Sweater Babe's patterns are always so beautiful.

Love SweaterBabe patterns. They have such wonderful patterns and designs. This hat should be fun to make, all I need is time.

I really like this pattern, as I like the knitted button chin strap. I feel for young children and/or infants, the tie strings can be dangerous. I also like the textured pattern.
