Materials Needed:
-  1 skein Medium #4 yarn in cream  (for pixie beanie)  I used Debra Norville “Everyday Solids” yarn

*This 3 – 6 month size has one more dc row (Row 11) than the 0 -3 month size.  This gives it just a little more length.

(Make 2)

Chain 11 .  In the fourth ch from the hook, work 4 dc.  Work 1 dc in each of the next 4 ch.  In the next ch, work 1 hdc.  In the next ch, work 1 sc.  In the last ch, 1 sl st, 1 ch, 1 sl st.  Now work up the other side of the leaf.  1 sc in first ch.  1 hdc in next ch.  1 dc in each of the next 4 ch.  4 dc in the last ch. 
To add the stem, ch 5.  Turn and 1 sc in each chain.  Sl st in the first stitch of the leaf.  Fasten off and keep 15 inch length of yarn to sew leaf onto hat.


Attaching Leaves to Hat

Using the photograph for leaf placement, sew both leaves to the hat.  Sew the leaves on before sewing on the sunflower.  To attach, sew right along center line (vein) of each leaf.   Fasten off securely and weave in loose ends of yarn.


Sunflower:  (for both sizes)

Center of Sunflower  (Using Brown Yarn)

Round 1:  Using the “Magic Circle”, Ch 1.  Work 12 dc in the circle.  Join with slip stitch to top of first dc.   (12 dc)
Round 2.  Work 2 dc in each stitch around.  (24 dc)
Fasten off yarn and weave in loose ends.


Petals of Sunflower:  (Using Yellow Yarn)

Round 1:  Attach yarn to the dc just to the right of the last slip stitch of the brown yarn.   *Ch 3, skip 1 dc st, sl st into the next stitch*.  Repeat 11 more times.  (This makes the base for 12 petals.) 
Round 2:  Sl st in the first Ch 3 space. 
In the same space, Ch 2,  work 2 dc, Ch 2, Sl st.  *Then Sl st in the next Ch 3 space.  In the same Ch 3 space, Ch 2, work 2 dc, Ch 2, Sl st*  Repeat from * to * all the way around.  End with a Sl st at the base of the first petal.  This should neatly connect the last petal with the first petal.

Fasten off yarn, leaving a tail of yarn about 20 inches long.  This will be used to sew the flower to the hat.

Refer to the photo for placement of the sunflower on the hat.  (Or choose your own placement!)  Sew flower to hat.  Weave in loose ends.

Enjoy!!!  It will be so cute on your little one!!!
