I've been looking for a super cute pixie and I couldn't find a free pattern I liked. So my solution...Make one! This hat is super simple. It's knitted on a pair of strait needles and is essentially a large rectangle until you sew it up.

Pattern Link: http://positori.blogspot.com/2011/10/free-knit-pattern-autumn-pixie-hood.html

For the Autumn Pixie Hood above I used Homespun yarn in Prairie for the brim and Earth for the remaining body. I mixed my yarn colors in the fringe for a more blended look.

For a Red Riding Hood look I used Loops & Threads Charisma yarn in red. It's super chunky and velvety soft. Because the yarn is chunkier than the homespun the hood came out a bit larger even though the pattern is the same stitch count.

I hope you all enjoy the pattern Smiley
If you have a Ravelry Account I'd love to see your finished hat Cheesy

Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

This hat is really adorable! Do you happen to know how much yarn you needed to make it?

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

I made the red one early this year and I remember needing more than 1 skein of the Charisma.  The brown one seemed like it used about half the skein of the homespun.  I would give an estimated guess of around 170 yards.

Thanks for the link to the pattern.  I was actually about to search for an earwarmer pattern but I might just do this instead.

I just made 2 of these!  My first try was on a red chunky homespun, but I lose count alot and it didn't turn out exactly how it should, plus I didn't do the 3 needle bind off Sad  The second one, well that's a different story Smiley  I used one blue and one white worsted weight red heart yarn and actually kept up with the count!!  And it turned out awesome!!  I made the fringe long so that it can be wrapped around the neck like a scarf.  I will post pictures as soon as my DD comes home to model them for me. (I don't have a raverly so I hope it's ok that I post it here.  Thank you for the pattern, I'm for sure making a few more Smiley


this was my first try...i can't count as you can see I only did two lines after the brim

this was my second try...I did much better on this one!
