Pixie Bonnet Pattern



Hello friends!
It's that time again! This is the May pattern for my "Pattern a Month" challenge.
This sweet little Pixie bonnet is very quick and easy to make and uses very little yarn, so it's a great stash buster and perfect as a last minute gift for a new arrival :-)
You can find this pattern on Ravelry HERE and if you don't fancy making your own, you can find the finished bonnets in my online store HERE


Baby Pixie Hat

Size: 0-3m (Finished size when laid flat: 15cm tall, 14cm deep)
Materials:
4.5mm crochet hook
60m (65yds) 8 ply or DK yarn
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

Tension/Gauge
15 stitches & 8 rows to 10cm (4")

Abbreviations (British/Australian crochet terms used throughout with U.S. terms in parenthesis): 
ch = chain
st or sts = stitch or stitches
sl st = slip stitch
dc (sc) = double crochet (single crochet)
htr (hdc) = half treble (half double crochet)
tr (dc) = treble (double crochet)
Pattern:
Note: Bonnet is worked from the front (face) edge, with simple shaping and increases to create the "Pixie" point at the back of the hat.

Ch 48.
Row 1: 1tr (dc) into 4th ch from hook, 1tr (dc) in each st to end. (46sts)
Row 2-5: 2ch [to count as 1htr (hdc) through out pattern], 1tr (dc) in each st to end.
Row 6: 1ch [to count as 1 dc (sc)], 1dc (sc) in each of next 2 sts, 1htr (hdc) in each of next 2 sts, 1 tr (dc) in each st until 5 sts remain, 1htr (hdc) in each of next 2 sts, 1dc (sc) in each st to end. (46sts)
Row 7: 2ch, 1tr (dc) in each of next 21 sts, 2tr (dc) in each of next 2 sts, 1tr (dc) in each st to end. (48sts)
Row 8: 2ch, 1tr (dc) in each of next 22 sts, 2tr (dc) in each of next 2 sts, 1tr (dc) in each st to end. (50sts).
Row 9: 1ch [to count as 1 dc (sc)], 1dc (sc) in each of next 2 sts, 1htr (hdc) in each of next 2 sts, 1tr (dc) in each of next 19 sts, 2tr in each of next 2 sts, 1 tr (dc) in each st until 5 sts remain, 1htr (hdc) in each of next 2 sts, 1dc (sc) in each st to end. (52sts)
Row 10: 2ch, 1tr (dc) in each of next 24 sts, 2tr (dc) in each of next 2 sts, 1tr (dc) in each st to end. (54sts).
Row 11: 1ch [to count as 1 dc (sc)], 1dc (sc) in each of next 2 sts, 1htr (hdc) in each of next 2 sts, 1tr (dc) in each of next 21 sts, 2tr in each of next 2 sts, 1 tr (dc) in each st until 5 sts remain, 1htr (hdc) in each of next 2 sts, 1dc (sc) in each st to end. (56sts)

Next you will join the back seam, which is the working edge, of your bonnet. This is done by folding your bonnet in half (bringing the end of the row to the beginning of the row) and working a sl st into the back loop only of both sides all the way along the back seam, now turn your hat in the other way so that the sl st seam will be on the inside of the hat.  Fasten off. 
Circle Ties:
4 ch. 11tr into 4th ch from hook, join with sl st in ch #4 at the beginning of your disc. Ch 55, join with sl st to front corner or chin of your bonnet. 
Make another tie the same, joining it to the other side of your bonnet using a sl st.
Weave in ends & you're finished!

You can also find a few other variations for this Pixie Bonnet that another blogger has posted on her blog HERE. It is in Dutch but you can easily use Google Translate to translate it to English :-)

  1. Very very sweet! A little pixie baby! Great idea for a gift! I'm a real stickler for babies wearing hats - maybe that's because I like knitting and crocheting???!

  2. Thank you :-)
    I don't think there are too many thing cuter than a baby wearing a snuggly wooly hat! I love making them too :-)

  3. It's a very cute hat but the instructions were rather confusing. I don't understand how you got that cone shape at the top. Mine came out as a tube, so I modified it and made square corners on both right and left sides. Thanks anyway! It's a great baby shower gift

    1. Hello Theresa, thank you for the message. I'm sorry you found the pattern a little confusing. I'd love to be able to help you with it. I'm not sure how you got a tube, were you perhaps attempting to work in the round rather than flat, back & fourth in rows? Let me know, so I can clarify anything for you :-) Also, if you're interested, you might like to see the hats other people have made using this pattern on Ravelry :-)

  4. I figured it out! The other pictures on Ravelry were very helpful. You said stitch up the back seam and I didn't realize which seam that was (I'm new at this). I assumed the "working edge" was the left/right sides of the rectangle. I'll try it again next time a new baby shows up in my life. Thanks again!

  5. I've been looking for the perfect pixie bonnet pattern for a certain sparkly yarn I have. Thanks for a wonderful pattern. I don't have time to make many, but would you mind if I sold one or two of the finished products at an upcoming craft fair? The fair benefits our local chapter of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers).

    Thanks!

  9. Hello Allison, Thank you for your lovely comment :-) I'm glad you're enjoying using the pattern! I'm happy for you to sell the hats you make using this pattern to friends or in an online store such as Etsy, or at craft fairs/markets. If you're selling them online, please be sure to include a note in the item description stating where the pattern is from. I realise it's a bit tricky to label things as such when you're selling them at fairs/markets etc, so there no need to do it in that situation :-) Thank you very much for taking the time to write and ask!!

  12. I love this hat! I'm a new hairdresser and its slow here, so I crochet items and sell them at a local shop. Would it be OK if I sell the ones I make? I put tags on everything I make to give the author of the pattern credit, so I'll put your name and whatever else you would like me to put on it if its OK with you.

    Thanks!

  13. Hi, I love this pattern (and so many of your others!) and have made it for the little ones but I've had lots of the older kids and even friends and family members asking for ones for themselves - do you have any advice on how the pattern could be enlarged to teen/adult size?

  21. Hello Shara! Thank you for sharing such a terrific pattern! I love finding patterns that are well written and work up just the way they are suppose to (I have found many that don't!). I also really appreciate you taking the time to include the US terms inside the pattern, it makes it so much easier to keep track while working (I tend to get "in the zone" and just do what's written, and forget the change in terms).

    I was wondering if you would allow me to post photos and potentially sell my finished product on my online store (with credit given of course). Thank you so much for your consideration!

  23. I've been looking for an easy bonnet pattern for a while now and this one was super easy and it's just adorable. I have an etsy shop that I recently opened up and would love to be able to sell the finished bonnet there and have a link to your blog or ravelry page at the bottom to give credit. Also wondering if it would be okay to send a few to a photographer to use as her props when she shoots newborns. If not, I completely understand. Still a beautiful hat!
    Thanks so much

  25. Hi there. When working rows 2-5, do you miss the first treble/dc or do you stitch into it? The bit about creating the hdc is confusing me a bit.
    Cheers in advance.

    Replies
    1. Hello Mufghett :-) The 2ch at the beginning of these rows counts as the first stitch so you don't need to stitch into the very 1st stitch :-) I hope that clears things up :-) Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help :-)

  40. Hello Miranda :-) There are a few things you could try to upsize this bonnet. One is to use a thicker yarn and larger hook. And the other way is to add a few extra stitches in the beginning chain and do several more rows. This might take a little bit of experimentation. but if you know how big the hat needs to be to fit a one year old (either by measuring the childs head, or measuring a hat that already fits, and what your gauge/tension is you will be able to calculate how many stitches/rows you need :-)

  41. What a lovely bonnet!! It's too cute!! Also you are very generous letting people to sell them.
    I may be mistaken, as your pattern seems very popular and nobody has commented anything about it, but I think there is a mistake in row 7. Shouldn't it be 1tr in each of next 22 sts instead of 21? If we have 46 sts in row 6, then it should be 22+22+2 (the ones with the increases)=46. right?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you for taking the time to write and leave feedback :-) The pattern is correct on Row 7. When you do the 2ch at the beginning if the row this counts at your first hdc, so the final stitch count includes this as a stitch :-) Hopefully that clears things up a but :-) There is a note in Rows 2-5 explaining this :-) Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to help :-) P.S. Sorry for the delayed reply, I'm not sure how I missed your comment! :-)

  42. I have been asked to make some hats as props for a photographer, this pattern is perfect, i usually design my own crochet patterns but I'm a bit all hatted out at the moment and no matter what I do I just can't get mine to go right. Yours is perfect.m Pretty please.... May i have permission to sell the finished hat. I probably won't make anymore than 6 and I would love to sing your praises as the designer.

This might take a little bit of experimentation. but if you know how big the hat needs to be to fit a 2 year old (either by measuring the childs head, or measuring a hat that already fits) and what your gauge/tension is you will be able to calculate how many stitches/rows you will need to make the correct size hat. Your starting chain needs to be an even number. When adding extra rows (to add depth to the hat) add them on the plain rows that don't have shaping at the beginning and end of the row, and you will need to add these extra rows before you start the pixie peak shaping (in the centre of the rows to make the point on top of the hat) otherwise you will end up with a VERY big "point" on the top of the hat and it might look a bit odd instead of cute :-) I hope this is helpful :-)

  47. Ahh I'll try again lol
    may I sell any hats I make?
    And do you think it may be too big the measurements I got were 17cm for the point, 15cm for the front and 14cm deep (across)?

  49. Love how easy this pattern is! I made one with a thinner yarn so it ended up smaller then I thought it should be but I know how to fix that :).
    Would it be OK to sell these once I get the sizing down? Thank you for your awesome pattern!

  53. Hi Shara, thanks for the pattern! Mine didnt turn out so pointy at the top for some reason, but otherwise good. Did you ever end up making patterns for bigger sizes? Or do you have any ideas of how I would go about adjusting the pattern to make for kids and adults?
    Thanks :)

  54. Hi, what a fab pattern! I've just made it for a friend who is due next week, I think she'll love it! Would it be ok to make another one for my etsy shop? Obviously I'll credit the pattern back to yourself and thanks again for a great hat pattern.

  58. Great little bonnet, worked up really nicely! I'll be making a bigger one for my now 4 month old! I'm thinking of selling some of my crochet as well and would like to add these to my inventory. Would that be ok? I will provide you with pattern credit and a link when appropriate! Thanks for the pattern either way!

    1. Hello Marte :-) I'm glad you're enjoying this pattern. I might make a pattern for bigger sizes in the future, but I couldn't say when. You might like to try a little experiment with some thicker yarn and a bigger hook to create larger sizes ��
