Long Tail Pixie Baby Hat Knitting Pattern in 3 Sizes

PLEASE NOTE: This is a set of instructions, not the physical object. Once you have paid, you will receive an email with instructions for downloading your pattern pdf, along with 3 other files:
1) yarn and needle terminology and equivalents
2) how to make your own double-pointed needles
3) newborn photography and digital editing tips

Make this adorable baby elf hat photo prop yourself! (Think! Who do you know that's a knitter?) Actually, with all the videos on YouTube, there's no excuse for not learning any more!

Instructions are given for knitting the hat in three sizes:
0-4 months (for head size 14 to 16 in. / 36-40 cm)
4-9 months (for head size 16 to 18 in. / 40-45 cm)
Toddler (for head size 18 to 20 in. / 45-50 cm)

I specialize in clear, thorough instructions, and coaching is included!

You may choose to knit either the seamless, "knitting in the round" version, with a circular knitting needle...or the easier back-and-forth flat knitting version (sewing up a seam when finished.)

Both versions provide options for longer or shorter tails, and I also tell you how to make a pompom, if you would prefer that instead of the long twisted cord.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the possibility of the long cord getting wrapped around the neck, please do not use a hat like this one for taking baby out and about.

Permission is granted to sell hats knitted from this pattern.

Digital downloads
File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


I accept credit cards, Etsy gift cards, and PayPal as instant payments.

If none of these work for you, I will also accept a US check or money order by mail.
I'm sorry, but no Canadian checks or money orders. The fees to process them cost more than their face value, usually.

Returns & exchanges

I do accept returns on knitted items if returned immediately, but I cannot refund the shipping fee you pay to me, nor the money you pay the post office to send it back to me.

Additional policies

I welcome questions about custom orders.
