Elf bonnet

For Christmas this year I made my wee cousin this sweet little elf hat.

The pattern is Pixielue by Paelas Knits. The instructions, which come translated into English from Norwegian, were a bit befuddling at times but it worked out fine. Paelas does so many more adorable knitting patterns for small people… 

The yarn is Rowan “alpaca colour” (made from baby alpaca!) that I picked up half price from The Wool Croft in Abergavenny (and the persimmon skein for the edging and pompom is the same stuff, but was a gift from someone many moons ago).
