Know what the world probably doesn't need? Another pussyhat knitting pattern. And, yet, here we are. Worked in the round, grafted top, about 4 hrs to make.
You know that moment when you’re walking around your LYS, minding your own business, and suddenly you spot the perfect yarn? It’s magical yarn that pulls you in like a tractor beam. Yarn so great that it doesn’t even matter that you’re not sure what you’re going to do with it, exactly, because you already know that you’re not leaving the store without it. Yarn that will make you spend an utterly stupid amount of time on Ravelry when you get home, looking for the perfect project to show it off. Well, it turns out that that kind of yarn—in this case, Bigarelle yarn in the Vert colorway by Bergere de France—is where baby Color Affection shawls come from.
Fact: I am a grown woman, and I wear an adorable hand-knitted pixie hat in public. (I mean, why should kids have all the fun?) And, do you know what? It doesn’t even look ridiculous. Instead, it gives my winter-wear a cozy, whimsical style that really fits the fun, festive feel of the season. Of course, I couldn’t keep something that makes me so happy to myself, so I’m very excited to share my easy pixie hat knitting pattern with all of you!
Pixie hats have definitely turned into my go-to mindless knitting project of choice (as illustrated by the ever-growing pile of them on my desk). They’re quick and easy—I’ve been known to park myself in front of a Doctor Who marathon and whip one up in an evening—so they also make great last-minute gifts.
