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!

I love Sweaterbabe's patterns. They are well written and beautiful. This adorable hat is no exception. It was a quick knit but doesn't look like a simple design.
