DIY: Quinn's Pixie Hat

A few episodes back on Glee, Quinn wore the cutest little knitted pixie hat for about 2 minutes on the show. But of course, I can't resist a knitted hat, and I started scouring the internet for a pattern.

I wasn't the only one who spotted this adorable hat, and an entire thread opened in the Ravelry (knitting website) forums. I used a combination of two different patterns posted on Ravelry, including  this pattern from Gourmet Knits, and this pattern from Marieke at Knitty Gritty.

I started out using the Gourmet Knits pattern, but the decreases didn't work out for me, so then I unraveled the hat to the decreases and used the decreases from the Knitty Gritty pattern. I think the hat turned out pretty close to Quinn's. I looked for a rosy colored yarn, but purple (Loops & Threads Charisma) was the closest I found.
