Autumn cloud baby pixie hat - free crochet pattern

It's about time for winter wardrobe and the pixie hat style with endless options to create is on my hooking fun now.

By chance, I saw the video of the Even Moss stitch crochet from Crochet Challenge Stitches of Crochet Happy. This easy crochet stitch added a cute and unique texture on the pattern I made :)


Materials:
5.5mm crochet hook
Blue and light blue worst weight yarn
Fuzzy yarn


Abbreviations:
Sc Single crochet
Ch = Chain
Sl = Slip stitch
   

Inc = Increase  
Dec = Decrease        
Tc = Triple crochet
Dc = Double crochet
Inc tc = 2 triple crochet in same stitch
Inc dc = 2 double crochet in same stitch
Hdc= half double crochet
Dec hdc= half double crochet 2 stitches together
Inc hdc= 2 half double crochet in same stitch

Note: this is a 3 to 6 months old baby hat but you can always adjust the size by decreasing or increasing the foundation chain and the length of hat.

Start with a foundation chain of 53, dc into 3rd chain from hook, dc across.
R1: ch 1, turn,  skip 1st st, sl into next st ( hdc into next st, sl into next st ) repeat 'till end.
R2: ch 1, turn, skip 1st st, ( sl into next st, hdc into next st ) repeat 'till end.
R3: like R1
R4: like R2
R5: like R1
R6: like R2
R7: like R1
R8: turn, ch 3 ( as 1st dc ) dc across.

Repeat 2 times from R1 to R 8 ( fasten off )

Use light blue yarn to crochet border around the hat with hdc. 



Seam the back with sc.


 Optional: Sc the ribbed edge with fuzzy or fluffy yarn


Add the 2 braids by holding 2 strands of yarn and crochet short chains.


Finish it! I don't have any little model ( lol ) but the pointed top still looks so cute on this lamb toy.
