#91 Fancy Stitch Pixie Hat

Pretty Pixie from Anne H.

Here's a bold-colored pixie hat, the #91 Fancy Stitch Pixie Hat pattern, that is a great pattern you will use again and again!


This one is knit by Anne H. of Ashland, OR. Here are Anne's comments on this pattern:

"I love this pattern! I've made this hat for newborns and for my 85 year old grandmother (by her request)." -- Anne H. of Ashland, OR

Anne used Caron Simply Soft in Raspberry.

"The pattern was easy to follow and fast and fun to knit, and produces a cute hat that makes me look like an advanced knitter (I'm not). I especially like that there is just enough flourish to the hat that it would make even very plain yarns look good." Fancy_Pixie_HatS_350

Thanks for sharing your finished project, Anne!  Looks like you've got this pattern down!  Hope your Grandmother is enjoying hers ;-) 

(At right is the original sample on my little one, who's now 4 years old!)

Two upcoming patterns and ANOTHER Pattern Giveaway!


This super-cute pixie hat pattern is coming very soon!

See the lovely, unique lace stitch pattern?  This is one you'll have to pay attention to as you knit, but the resulting fabric is very pretty.

Plus, this hat looks super cute on (more photos coming when my 11-month old is up for it!) and knits up quick.  The smaller sizes only require 1 ball of Debbie Bliss' Cashmerino Aran yarn.

Also coming soon is another great cowl!  This one in a cloud-soft mohair and very current shade of purple.Mohair_Mobius_Cowl2_350

Cowls are really popular this season and this one is so wonderful to wear and knit!  It's actually a long piece that is seamed to become a mobius strip.  Wear it double looped as shown in the first photo, or as a single twisted circular scarf.

It makes for a fabulous gift project.  Sample shown is knit in the soft super kid mohair from GGH.

Watch for BOTH of these patterns to be released next month!
