This is a pixiehat for ALL your children:
boys and girls, babies, toddlers, kids…
perfectly genderneutral, beautifuly textured, easy to knit, fun to make - and people will smile at your children permanently ´cause they will look like the sweetest little pixies, stepping straight out of woodland fairytale…

The bonnet is a quick and easy knit, even for beginners.
It will fit easily under a biking-helmet and the snug fit will keep those little ears warm and cosy!

skills required:
casting on, knitting, purling, decreasing, binding off, basic sewing (for the back of the head..) picking up stitches and making icords (optionally) all steps and tricks are explained in detail with lots of texts and pictures in the pattern…

I recommend to use a worsted weight or Aran weight yarn,
1 skein ( 50g) is sufficiant for the smaller sizes, for the 2 larger ones you will need 2 skeins.

Please note:
this pattern comes with a sewing line at the back of the head! If your baby loves outdoor sleeps - in his pram or stroller, with a hat on to stay warm and cosy - you might want to wait for him/her to grow a little and fit into size 6-9months or more … as the sewing line might play hard on Babies comfort when laying on the backside!
