Pixie beanie - crochet

I have been quite busy with the hook and yarn lately. My first was a pixie, or gnome beanie, making up a pattern as I went based on this:

Instead of crocheting in rounds, I just spiralled around ( I hate the look of joined rows, and don't mind the spiral affect at all). I also used 3 strands of 8 ply yarn together (all different blues) with a 10mm hook, working in double crochet. I like the chunky affect, and it works quickly! I finished most of this beanie in one feed! Just had to finish the ear flaps after he was finished!

Just wished I made it a little bigger - their heads seem to grow quite quick at this early age.
