Pixie hat time again!

Some friends of ours introduced a new ‘human bean’ to the gang a couple of weeks ago! Welcome to the world Hermione Rose!

Because I don’t like to start knitting for a new baby until we’ve heard the good news I’ve collected together a few simple patterns over the years that make for sweet little gifts and can be completed very speedily! This hat has always been a hit…

It’s a lovely vintage style pattern that’s available here and is easily adapted for different weight yarns and embellished with, for example, a soft fabric lining and a contrasting vintage button…

This lining is a little piece of Michael Miller ‘Hedgehog Meadow’ that I had lurking in my fat quarter stash! The yarn is Sublime Cotton Kapok DK – again from the stash, in a lovely lemony/lime shade that’s perfect for a Spring baby.

We’ll be introducing our mob to Hermione Rose in the next few days – wish her luck!
