Yay! The Pixie hat patterns and yarn to make them is now here at the shop! These hats are so adorable and it is just in time, as the weather seems to be getting a little chilly. The pattern is written for sizes 3 months up to 36 months. This is Piper who is 4 years old wearing the 36 month size, but she is teeny tiny for her age. My little guy has one, and he wore it out last night for the first time. People were stopping us everywhere to comment on how cute it is! This is a hat you will knit again and again because everyone will want one for their little one!
If you are a beginner and this hat makes you nervous, have no fear we are here to help! This hat is much easier than you think! Plus we have made a series of how to videos to help you with several of the techniques you will be using to make these hats, such as Make 1(M1 increase), a double needle bind off (a beautiful seam), and how to make Pom-Poms. All of the videos are on our You Tube Channel, which we just created. We think these videos are wonderful when you get stuck or just need a little help learning something new. We are working hard to make videos on all of our projects in the shop, we hope that you enjoy them!
Here is the video on the make 1 Increase, we use this increase in the Pixie hat pattern, but it is also in many of your knitting patterns. It is a beautiful increase and often is just listed as an M1.
