A Pixie for Pearl

I think I mentioned that a fourth hat was nearing completion for our winter weekend away.

Well, it was finished in the nick of time, all except for blocking. Not that it mattered, really. The kid refused to wear it. Refused to have anything on her head, despite the chilly temperatures down in Bundanoon.

It's the Stella Pixie Hat again, like the red one, except adjusted for the bulky yarn left over from this tunic. And that little band around the base is an applied i-cord - my first ever! I was quite pleased with myself, even though I put it on the wrong edge and now the messier grafted seam is on the top instead of the back. Oh, well. Let's face it, it might not be the most well-worn item in the accessories cupboard.

You can see how pleased she looks to have a new hat. I'm frankly surprised I managed to get any pictures of her wearing it, so determined was she to ditch it and run.

  1. The last picture is fantastic. I knit that hat two years ago and lost the pattern -- thanks for posting this. What a cutie in the pixie hat, by the way.


I love comments. Thanks for yours!
