Pixie Pie

Cuteness overload! This is the Vintage Pixie Cap, a free pattern on Ravelry. I knit it with 38 grams of leftover sock yarn from Z’s Tiny Rocky Coast. It’s Colinette Jitterbug in Elephant’s Daydream.

At first it didn’t seem like the neck band was long enough to go under her chin with comfort, but after I added an additional inch it became clear that I didn’t need to. I might just move the button further back on the hat rather than ripping the band out a bit. I could leave the first button to use as she gets bigger.

This is the 6 month size. It comes in 3 or 6 months, but since she’s in the 75th percentile for height, weight, and head size, I figured I should size up a bit for the winter. I went down two needle sizes to get gauge. This hat could easily be made for an older child by using a heavier yarn and larger needle with the same numbers. It’s a piece of cake.

And here is Z all bundled up in her Tiny Rocky Coast, the Vintage Pixie Cap, and the Pinwheel Baby Blanket I made awhile back. Covering her in warm woolens is such a satisfying pastime.

Now, back to NaKniSweMo!

  1. Oh man, she is so cute! Just look at those cheeks! I am going to have to knit this hat for my friend’s October baby. The three-month size would be perfect!
