Christmas baby pixie hat - free crochet pattern

X'mas is coming ... It's time to prepare some gifts!

Christmas baby pixie hat

Materials: ( I used )
5,5 mm crochet hook
Light weight yarn: green, red, white ( X'mas theme )
Yarn needle

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: I crocheted hats for 3 to 6 months babies but this pattern is free size so you can always adjust
the size by decreasing or increasing the foundation chain and the length of hat. 

Special stitch used: side puffs stitch, instruction here:

Start with a foundation chain of 53, hdc into 2nd chain from hook, hdc across.

R1: turn, ch 2, dc into the same stitch, dc across 
( I used this technique because I don't like the gap when you crochet ch 3 as 1st dc for every turn )
R2: turn, ch 2, dc into the same stitch, skip 1 st, (1dc in next st, side puff over the dc just made, skip 1 st) repeat 'till end, 1dc in last st.
R3: turn, ch 1, hdc into same stitch, hdc across.
Repeat 4 times from R1 to R3 ( total 12 rounds )
Crochet last round ( R13 ) with dc across ( fasten off )

Strap: used white yarn
Make a chain of your length.
Hdc into 2nd chain from hook, hdc across, at last chain make 2 hdc into it, continue with the other side of the chain, hdc across. ( fasten off )

Seam the back with sc ( wrong side )
Optional: hdc acround the bottom border of the hat for a smooth look.
Use sc to attach strap to hat ( wrong side ). Attach a little pom pom on top.
