Pixie Hat

Here's the hat without ties.



Here it is with ties. It comes highly recommended from Dexter.

I originally got this pattern from someone's blog. They have some discrepancies in regards to how many double crochets they tell you to do and how many there are supposed to be in the completed row. I'm going to do my best to write a corrected pattern here, as well as post some pictures I took of my son and his roommate wearing them.




This pattern calls for an H hook, but I crochet very tightly so I didn't get a toddler sized hat until I went up to a J hook. The hat I made with an I hook barely fits the 13 month old living at my house.


Make a magic ring (or slipknot.)

Row 1: in the magic ring, ch3 (this is the 1st dc), 8 dc around and join. (9 st)

Pull the magic ring closed.

Row 2: ch 3, 1 dc in each of previous dc, join to top ch 3(9 st)

Row 3: ch 3, dc in the same st as ch3, 2 dc in each remaining st and join. (18 st)

Row 4: ch 3, 1 dc in each st around, join to top ch 3 (18 st)

Row 5: ch 3, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st. Repeat from * around and join.

(27 st)

Row 6: ch 3, 1 dc in next st, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 2 st. Repeat from * around and join

(36 st)

Row 7: ch 3, 1 dc in next 2 st,* 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 3 st. Repeat from * around and join .

(45 st)

Row 8: ch 3, 1 dc in next 3 st,* 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 4 st. Repeat from * around and join .

(54 st)

Row 9 -12 : ch 3, 1 dc in every st around and join. (54 st each row)

Row 13: ch 3, sk next st, 1 dc in each of the next 39st, sk next st, 1 dc in next st and turn work.

(41 st)

Row 14: ch 3, sk next st, dc in next 39 st, turn work. ( 40 st)

Row 15: ch 3, sk next st, dc in the next 13st, work a dc decrease 6 times. 1dc in next 13 st, sk 1 st, dc in last st and turn work. (33 st)

Row 16: ch 2, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in next 6 st, 1hdc in next st, sc in last st and turn work.

Row 17: ch 1, sc in next st, hdc in next st, 1 dc in next 4 st, hdc in next st, sc in last st and turn work

Row 18: slst around work up to the last 9 st of the previous row, ch2, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in

next 6 st, 1hdc in next st, sc in last st and turn work .

Row 19: ch 1, sc in next st, hdc in next st, 1 dc in next 4 st, hdc in next st, sc in last st and tie off.

Finish : Weave in loose ends.
