Fact: I am a grown woman, and I wear an adorable hand-knitted pixie hat in public. (I mean, why should kids have all the fun?) And, do you know what? It doesn’t even look ridiculous. Instead, it gives my winter-wear a cozy, whimsical style that really fits the fun, festive feel of the season. Of course, I couldn’t keep something that makes me so happy to myself, so I’m very excited to share my easy pixie hat knitting pattern with all of you!
Pixie hats have definitely turned into my go-to mindless knitting project of choice (as illustrated by the ever-growing pile of them on my desk). They’re quick and easy—I’ve been known to park myself in front of a Doctor Who marathon and whip one up in an evening—so they also make great last-minute gifts.
I’ll be spending the day with family in beautiful snow-dusted Brattleboro, VT, far, far away from my computer, eating my weight in Tofurkey and mashed potatoes. But, before I abandon the screen entirely, I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the project that’s currently on my worktable. (Because, everyone needs a pixie hat, right?) I can’t wait to share it with you guys next week!
