Item details

Two patterns, perfect to keep the winter chill away and a smile on your face!

The first is for 'The New Pixie Cap', a jaunty affair you can make in a couple of evenings. The cap ties under the chin and requires fingering weight yarn and 3.75mm needles.

The second pattern is for 'The Gayest Little Hood', a simply knitted hood and scarf, decorated with a border of crochet flowers. Requires fingering weight yarn, 4mm needles and a size 10 crochet hook.

This listing is for the above PDF pattern, available by Instant Download (in the Downloads section of your Etsy account). I can also email it to you instead if requested.

All my vintage patterns are out of copyright (public domain) and by purchasing a pattern, you’ve ensured that another copy exists, somewhere in the world. Public domain means you can make anything from the pattern to sell (just please don't resell or pirate the PDF, thanks!).

These patterns have been pre-loved down the through the years, and original owner's names and notations may be visible on the scans.

You'll need Adobe to open the file, however I can print and post for an additional charge - just convo me if needed. Otherwise, the pattern is available in your Etsy account under ‘Downloads’ or can be emailed to you within 24-48 hours of purchase to an email address if requested.
