The Pom Pom Pixie Bonnet is knitted flat on two straight needles and then decreased in the back to shape the bonnet to a rounded pixie shape with a shallow point. It makes a beautiful photography prop for a newborn baby’s first photos.
This is a simple pattern that even beginning knitters can create. All patterns are written in standard US terms.
