Elfin Topper, Free Pattern

I realized last night that I had not completed the 3rd baby Hat & Booties set for my friend Moni. She works in a Dr's. office & it seems half the staff if pregnant! I believe the boys outnumber the girls at this point!
This pattern has so may versions, and every one has one! Here is mine.
This Elfin topper with it's rolled brim is always a quick fun knit. No mater what you make it of, its just darn cute.
As this Momma wants a washable yarn I used "I Love This Yarn" purchased at Hobby Lobby.
Using size 6 needles I cast on 64 & joined in the round
Knit 5 rounds, switch to size 8 & continue until body is approximately 4 inches. Knit 1 round placing markers every 16 stitches. The next 2 rounds K2tog decreasing at each marker. From this point on I decreased every other row until I have 20 stitches. From this point decrease every other stitch. In other words, knit 1 k2tog, k1, k2to to end of row.
Repeat until you have 4 stitches. Knit I cord for approximately 1 inch & tie off. Make tassel and attach!
Takes just a little over an hour. Larger sizes can be made by increasing stitches in multiples of 4


  1. Ok, I've got to make one, or two, of these. They're adorable and I loved the ones you posted before. Off to dig out some yarn before I head off to my daughter's house. They're Daddy is having surgery today so I'll be there awhile. Maybe long enough to knit a hat! Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Great! I saw these before. So glad you're sharing the pattern.

  3. Being sick and out of the loop, I almost missed this pattern. Thanks for sharing it. It is really cute and I plan to make it soon.


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
