Aviatrix is a fun, fast pattern for the cutest, best fitting baby helmet you will find. Worked on straight needles with instructions for 3 weights of yarn and 6 basic sizes this will become your “go to” last minute baby hat pattern, unassuming when it comes off the needles it needs to be placed on a baby’s head to reveal it’s true potential!
This pattern can be made with one 50 gram ball of fingerling weight wool. It’s much cuter if the hat is a little big (its a little small as shown on my son, but I’ve adjusted the pattern so that it should fit a 12 month old). Unlike the other pixie hats I’ve seen in 2x2 ribbing, this one is worked in the round, so it will create its own circular stripes if done with a striping yarn. I hope you enjoy this quick knit.
