I bring you a new pattern for your AllnOne knitting loom, the whimsical pixie hat! I loved knitting this precious little hat and I was so excited when I finished it to find a little someone to wear it for me so I could take pictures. I looked and looked for about two weeks and I couldn’t find a little girl model, then came to the rescue little Lily, she is precious and so sweet and she has the perfect little face for this little hat. Thank you to the Pace family for letting me model my little hat on their beautiful daughter and to Wendell Pace from PacePhoto.com for taking the pictures for me. I hope you all enjoy knitting the little pixie hat!
