This cute summer bonnet is a timeless, heirloom quality design that features gorgeous texture. It’s sure to be a staple in your little ones outdoor wardrobe.
It works up fairly quickly, making it the perfect last minute baby gift or fast project for your little one. I was able to whip up the 12-24 month size in under 1 1/2 hours! Cotton is a perfect yarn for spring/summer garments. It’s lightweight yet sturdy, and holds up well to washing. I used on Caron Cotton Cakes but you can use any worsted weight cotton that you have available. Whatever yarn you choose, make sure that it’s soft for baby’s delicate skin!
This bonnet has 5 great features:
Made from cotton, so it’s lightweight for spring and summer.
A wide brim to block the sun from little eyes.
Blocks wind from little ears.
Tie straps keep it on.
It’s washable. Very important. Kids are real messy.
