Irish Pixie Hat | Free Crochet Pattern!

Mar 14, 2017

St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner and I’ve got a freebie crochet pattern for you!  Sure, most people want to make leprechaun hats.  But I’ve always wanted to figure out how to make a pixie hat and this sounded like a fun alternative.  Let’s hop to it!

Are you ready to crochet up this cutie?
**Remember, you’re more than welcome to sell finished products from this pattern.  I only ask that you give me credit and link back to this pattern.  Please play nice and don’t claim the pattern or photos as your own.  If you do end up making a hat from my pattern, I’d love to see the results!  Link me to your blog, email me a photo (katy@threadandgrain.com), share it on Instagram @mckinleykaty or post it to my Facebook page.  I want to see what you can do!!
