I’ve got a new great nephew, born this morning weighing 10lbs (ouch!).
You may remember I was crocheting a blanket for the new arrival but he beat me to it. However!……
…….. Sandra, over at Wild Daffodil released a free pattern for a gorgeous little pixie hat yesterday and so I set to work last night and finished it this morning just as I got a text from my sister to tell me baby Benjamin has arrived. Though surely 10lbs is practically a toddler 😮
As with the blanket, I went with the ‘on trend’ grey that the modern baby is sporting, so it isn’t really pixie colours but I love it anyway.
Here is Sandra’s version, which is in more traditional pixie colours. I know, because I’ve met a lot of pixies.
Easy, quick and gorgeous – what more could you ask? Click on the photo above to go to Wild Daffodil where the pattern is available for free.
I used Stylecraft Special DK as suggested. I had plenty left over from various blanket projects and this is a wonderful project to use up those scraps.
I used approximately
Purple – 5g
Pale Lilac – 1g
Cream – 5g
Grey – 8g
Another great nephew or niece due in June so there’s definitely another one of these on the horizon. I’m also wondering about adapting it to make holes for dog ears – but that would just be silly. Or would it?
