Lil’ Pixie Hat

Here is a new item off the needles. I call her Lil’ Red Pixie. She is knitted from Plymouth Encore Tweed in Ruby.

 After casting on 90 stitches, I knit 5 rows in garter stitch. Within the first few rows I made sure to add a yarn over so I would have a button hole. 

Next, I decreased every 2nd row on each edge 10 times. I then knit for 3 inches.

In the end, I used a 3-needle bind off and sewed in the loose ends. I added a button to close the hat under the chin. I can’t wait to see this on my friend’s daughter. She is going to look super cute!

Until Next Time,

The above is a general outline. The sizing is geared toward a 3-4 year old child.
