Today’s CRAFT Pattern Podcast features this cute as pie Stella Pixie hat from the book, Vintage Baby Knits by Kristen Rengren. This pattern is based on a 1944 version of the popular pointy hat for babies in the 40’s and 50’s and is a knitted rectangle folded in half and grafted together with a knitted strap to secure the hat in place. Choose a nice soft sock yarn for this adorable hat.
