Newborn pixie hat

23 posts in this topic

This would look a lot cuter if it were on a baby!

I originally designed it for my cousin who is expecting his first child...a girl!

 

I hope to update this pattern with a picture of the hat on the little girl, she is due in April

 

The pattern has not been tested, please let me know if you find any errors.

As with all my patterns, purchased or free, feel free to sell anything you make from the patterns.

Please do not sell the patterns itself.

 

Thank you!

Thank you for sharing your cute pattern. I've been wanting to make pixie hats for babies for donation to a hospital since seeing them on etsy.

You are all welcome!

It can certainly be made it blue too for a boy...

I would just recommend not adding flowers! :)

I am going to try to get a boy hat made up in the next few days and add it here.

 

I HOPE... I have quite a few orders on my plate right now!

I LOVE pixie hats! (what can I say? I'm Irish!!). It's impossible to keep a hat on my grandson so I'll find a smaller baby to make one for. Thanks.

Is there a typo for round 11?

"10) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 5 sc) repeat once more, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last 3 sc (19 sc)

11) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc) repeat 2 more times, sc in last sc (22 sc)"

Should it be (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 5 sc) not (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc)???

YES!!!

Sorry about that.

This is what I get for not profreading my work well.

 

Thank you for pointing that out!

Thanks for the pattern. I just did up to 20 but I dont think it will fit my baby. I crochet a little tight. How will I go about increasing rows. I am new to crocheting. Thanks

No problem!

It depends on how much too small you think the hat it. Remember, most yarn stretches...unless its cotton.

The hat size varies a lot depending on the yarn used.

 

o.k....

I have worked up an extra 2 rows for you to add to the size of the hat.

 

20) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 11 sc) repeat 3 more times, 2sc in next sc, sc in last 4 sc. (58 sc)

21) (2 sc in first sc, sc in next 12 sc) repeat 3 more times, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last 5 sc. (63 sc)

22-40) sc in each sc around.

 

This will add a total of 10 extra stitches to your had width.

If this seems too much, just work row 20, then 21-40sc in each sc around.

 

Its not precise how many stitches you add in.

 

You may want to add on extra rows to the bottom also. It will make more of a brim.

I would eyeball it when you get close.

 

Please feel free to email me with any more questions you may have!
