Lutin Hat


Hello friends!
I've added another pattern to Ravelry and to my online store HERE for a very sweet pixie style hat.

The Lutin Hat is a fast, easy to make pattern that uses only a small amount of yarn, making it a great stash buster and perfect for a last minute gift for a new arrival :-)
The pattern covers 7 different sizes, from Newborn to 7 years! So all the little pixies in your life will be covered :-)


Materials: 
4mm needles 
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends 
4mm dpns for making i-cord ties
Approx. amount 8 ply or DK yarn required for each size: 
NB-3m: 65m (72yds) 
3-6m: 75m (83yds) 
6-12m: 80m (88yds) 
1-2yrs: 85m (93yds) 
2-3yrs: 95m (100yds) 
4-5yrs: 115m (125yds) 
6-7yrs: 135m (150yds)
Abbreviations: 
k = knit 
p = purl 
st or sts = stitch or stitches 
yf = yarn forward 
yb = yarn back 
sl = slip 
pw = purlwise 
kfb = knit into front and back of stitch, therefore increasing one stitch. 
PM = place marker 
SM = slip marker 
dpn: double pointed needle
Tension/Gauge: 
22 sts & 28 rows = 10cm (4”) 
If you have more sts you may need to use larger needles. If you have less sts you need to use smaller needles.
NOTE: 
Pattern is written for each size individually. 
Hat is worked from the front (face) edge, with short row shaping and increases to create the point at the back of the hat, with the back seam being joined using a 3 needle bind off (with photographic guides included in pattern).
