Easy pointy Pixie hat

Great for beginners!
I used 50gms bulky yarn and #13 US needles. I dont use circular needles so this is for those like me who use 2 needles!

cast on 50 sts.
Knit 6 to 8 rows in garter stitch (all knit)
change to knit stitch (1row K 1 row P) and knit 5 inches.
K8, k2 tog repeat till end
K7, k2 tog, repeat till end
K6, k2 tog, repeat till end

See a pattern forming?
knit until 10 sts are left
Cut off  yarn leaving a long tail
thread tail through the 10 sts and gather up.
Sew down back

good morning! I am a newbie knitter. Past attempts at knitting a hat hat have been really sad :( I think I will be succesful at making this one. Thank you sooooo much for this pattern.

Did you knit this on double pointed needles? Or would I need to seam it at the end?
Halcyon said…
Ooops! Sorry I read it again and realize that you did say it needs a seam. :)

When it says purl in between the knitting rows does that mean purl an entire row or just one stitch?
Unknown said…
Purl an entire row to get the flatter stockinette stitch.

I am brand new to knitting and really want to try this hat but I don't understand some of your lingo.
I dont understand this : K8, k2 tog repeat till end

Sorry to be a dummy!

I have spent the whole day searching for a pixie hat knitted on two needles. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My pattern is similar to this but I think adding a pompom to the topper which is about 10 inches long makes it more fun to wear. ..sorry I didn't know how to post a photo.

Great pattern! Do you think this would work to knit on circular needles? And just do a different rim and knit the whole rest of the cap?

2 needle fingerless gloves

This is an easy pattern that can be adapted according to your skill.
I used worsted weight yarn and US 5 needles.
You need just over 50gms of yarn.
I also found that knitting them both at the same times ensures that they bout turn out the same !

Cast on 42 sts
Knit 20 rows in k2 p2 rib
on the 20th row place markers this way:
k20 place marker, k2, place marker, k20
the 2 sts between the markers will form the increase for the thumb.

Knit to marker, (20 sts)
knit twice in the next stitch and in the one after that (the sts between the markers)
next row and all wrong side rows, Purl
Knit 20 sts (you have reached the marker)
knit twice in next stitch, K2 (till next marker) and K twice in the stitch before the marker

Continue this way, always increasing a stitch at each marker till you have 16sts between the markers.
