For christmas I want to make this hat for my family and since I am a beginner I want to start now because it is going to take me forever. The problem is I am not sure what stitch it is or how to make it. It looks like there are two different stitches, one for the bottom row and one for the rest of the hat. My question is does anyone have any idea how I would go about making this hat? Do you know what stitch it is? and finally how would I go about making the tassel at the end?
Here's a link to a pattern similar to your pixie hat:
And here's a Youtube video on how to make a tassel:
