Their organic approach to design, rich colour palette and chunky yarn selection are a sure sign that this isn't your Grandma's knitting.

This fun and whimsical pixie hat is knit with 100 yards of a super bulky yarn. I would consider this an intermediate pattern because of the finishing and seaming techniques. The pattern itself is easy, you just need to know knits and purls and basic decreasing.
You can see our Signature Pixiebell Hat in action on the big screen in an upcoming film titled "Theo", starring Dakota Johnson (daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson) and Oscar award winner Mira Sorvino. In the movie trailer http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1754736/ Dakota Johnson can be seen wearing our signature Pixie Hat in Barley.
It is important to note that this pattern does not create the same hat as our Spring Pixie pattern. The techniques used in both hats and the shaping of the hats are different. Our Signature Pixiebell pattern offers a pointier and thicker finished product.
