Best Ever Crochet Baby Hat



In 2004, I designed a simple and easy pixie baby hat, and it made a big hit at my market stalls in Northern Rivers, NSW, Australia and Spitalfields, London, UK. To date, PIXIE BABE has been the most admired and best seller baby hat for newborns and toddlers. It has given me, family, friends and customers much pleasure over the years. And TODAY, I have decided it is time to share this delightful crochet pattern with the world, and I hope you enjoy making, gifting and using this simple pixie hat.

PATTERN DETAILS:

Description:
A simply perfect crochet pattern for a pixie hat. Make this hat for newborn, toddler or young ones – this pattern is so easy it can be adapted to varying head sizes and different yarns and hook sizes. Have some fun and play with the colours and create your own style of pixie hat!

Yarn:
PIXIE BABE HAT PATTERN is EASY and YOU can make it using any yarn. My favourite yarns for this hat are: Bendigo Cotton 4ply or 8ply (my preference for newborns), 3ply or 4ply baby wool OR my other favourite yarn for winter babies Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK OR Rowan Belle Organic DK.

YOU CAN ALSO make the pixie hat using bamboo yarn, cotton/silk blend and cotton/cashmere blend.

Over the last eight (8) years, I have made hundreds of pixie hats from this pattern; it is so simple and so easy to adjust to different yarns and different hook sizes.  May you enjoy playing with it as much as I have.

I absolutely loved this pattern. I made both hats and they were very easy. And turned out fantastic. Very easy to follow.  Kelsey Jan 2015

Very easy to follow pattern! Love the 2-in-1 with options for a cotton lining. Worked up the "Sweet" in one evening for my brother and it was just what he was hoping for in a beanie.  Elizabeth G. Feb 2014

Both patterns are easy to read. Received patterns instantly. Nice deviation from the standard men's beanie, can't wait to give for Christmas gifts. Would purchase from this seller again.  2b3c Oct 2014

BABY PIXIE HATS for a New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR Crochet Baby Hats



Here is my first crochet hat pattern for 2012.  I designed the hat in late 2011, however with all the festive celebrations and family gatherings and New Year, it has been sitting on the back burner waiting for the final day of release.

This crochet pattern is a colourful little pixie hat for your little one, with a super cute "baby safe" pom pom on top.  It is crochet in single crochet and ever so easy.  Make any size you like starting from newborn to toddler, child to adult.  There are Hints on size adjustment in the pattern.

I made this POM POM baby hat with James C. Brett Pure Merino DK, which is ever so soft and delicate, the perfect little warmer for those cold winter days.  I used a 4.5mm hook for this hat even though the yarn label recommends a 4mm hook, because the elasticity of the yarn is quite strong, and I am sure you could easily use a 5mm hook and still get a good looking hat.
