Baby Pig Hat Newborn - 12 months - New exclusive pattern

I am lucky enough to have been asked to design a pattern for Xena Knits

Xena Knits are a family business based in the beautiful British Cheshire countryside, 
offering a fabulous range of high quality premium wools 
& Knitting yarns from some of the best wool 
and yarn artisans we can find such as Chilla Valley Alpaca, 
Figgi Yarns, Artesano & Manos Del Uruguay. 
They offer a fast & competitive worldwide delivery.

They asked me if I could design a baby hat
that was made out of purely natural materials.
We decided on a hat using the beautiful yarn from
The range is 100% cotton.

The eyes and nostrils were also made used 100% cotton
and the stuffing is 100% carded wool.

The Chic yarn is beautiful to work with and feels so soft.
It has a beautiful sheen to it and one ball
has Approx 255 yds / 234 metres in 130 gram / 4.58oz hank
so you can easily make one hat from the one ball.
If you make the newborn size you could probably get 2 out of each ball.

I will be working in conjunction with Xena Knits in the future
so keep an eye out for new patterns coming.

The beauty of this pattern is that you can add as many of the features
as you want so if you want a plain hat you can
or if you want the full features you can:




The pattern is in US terms
Items required
4mm (6) and 5mm (H) hook. If you don’t have a 4mm hook use a 4.25mm (G) hook instead.
