Best Ever Crochet Baby Hat

In 2004, I designed a simple and easy pixie baby hat, and it made a big hit at my market stalls in Northern Rivers, NSW, Australia and Spitalfields, London, UK. To date, PIXIE BABE has been the most admired and best seller baby hat for newborns and toddlers. It has given me, family, friends and customers much pleasure over the years. And TODAY, I have decided it is time to share this delightful crochet pattern with the world, and I hope you enjoy making, gifting and using this simple pixie hat.

A simply perfect crochet pattern for a pixie hat. Make this hat for newborn, toddler or young ones – this pattern is so easy it can be adapted to varying head sizes and different yarns and hook sizes. Have some fun and play with the colours and create your own style of pixie hat!

PIXIE BABE HAT PATTERN is EASY and YOU can make it using any yarn. My favourite yarns for this hat are: Bendigo Cotton 4ply or 8ply (my preference for newborns), 3ply or 4ply baby wool OR my other favourite yarn for winter babies Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK OR Rowan Belle Organic DK.

YOU CAN ALSO make the pixie hat using bamboo yarn, cotton/silk blend and cotton/cashmere blend.

Over the last eight (8) years, I have made hundreds of pixie hats from this pattern; it is so simple and so easy to adjust to different yarns and different hook sizes.  May you enjoy playing with it as much as I have.
