All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmerman, “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

Baby’s first hat in three yarn weights. The Party Pixie was inspired by a cardboard birthday hat but is a whole lot softer! This is a versatile pattern with two brim options and a fun (and easy) party tassel that is knit without ever breaking yarn.

Details on sizing up are included in the pattern. I’m working on a fingering weight version as well, which will be updated into this PDF.
