This pattern includes two hats that are designed to coordinate with my Seamless Wrap patterns for babies and children. The TEXTURED BEANIE pattern is a classic style that has been updated with the addition of a rolled brim and sophisticated textured band. PIXIE POINTS is deceptively simple! This adorable hat looks looks like a square when laying flat, but when worn the corners form “kitten ears”. Embellish the points with tassels or pom-poms for even more fun!

Both hats are knit in the round from brim to crown and are suitable for the advanced beginner.

Sizes & Fit
Directions are written for Preemie with changes for larger sizes in parentheses as follows: Preemie (Infant, Toddler, Child, Adult)

Hat fits best with at least 1” and up to 3” of negative ease.

Finished Measurements:
Depth: 3½ (4½, 5½, 6½, 7½)”
Circumference: 10 (12½, 15, 17½, 20)”
to fit a head circumference of about 12 (14½, 17, 19½, 22)”

Needles: Double pointed needles (or needles appropriate for your preferred method of small circumference circular knitting) and 12” or 16” circular needles in US sizes 8 (5mm) and 6 (4mm) or size required to obtain gauge and two sizes smaller.

Notions: 6 stitch markers, darning needle for weaving in ends

Yarn: In worsted to aran weight yarn you will need approximately 80 (90, 100, 110, 120) yards or 65 (75, 85, 95, 100) meters. If you choose a contrasting color (CC) yarn for the rolled hem, it should be about 10% of your total yardage. The optional textured band uses about 20% of total yardage and yarn is referred to as Color C. Samples shown were knit with Dream In Color Classy. “Seamless Kimono” sweater pattern is available separately.
