Yes! Gnomes do exist... ! As much as i love a bonnet on a Baby... the Pixieshape to me is the cutest options for toddlers and elder kids. The border with the tiny cables is a total eyecatcher even though it is super easy to knit and the gnomish silhouette of the hat just makes children look like the sweetest little people from a woodland fairytale ....
... and why is it called Mimi Pixiehat? i originally designed it for my sisters daughter Mimi, who will be 8 next year. I wanted to make a hat, that would fit ALL our kids, boys and girls, babys, toddlers and schoolchildren.... perfect for siblings and other family members ....
you can knit 4 sizes from this pattern:
1-2 years, 2-3 years, 3-4 years and 5-7 years and you will need 1-2 skeins of a rather chunkey yarn to be knitted with a 4mm circular needle ( Gauge 21/22stitches=10cm)
I have tried to explain all the tricky bits of this pattern ( ... there are only very few!) precizely with text and loads of images, so it should be possible to knit this for anyone who knows how to knit and purl, decrease and cast on and off.
