I found this adorable free pattern for a baby bonnet on Aesthetic Nest (which by the way is an awesome blog). This is the pattern: Crochet Blessing Day Bonnet. So here is how my first try came out:
Mine came out much larger than what the pattern slated. I am sure it is because I crochet a little looser than most. I like my items to stretch and cotton yarn doesn’t do that very well. The pattern doesn’t give a gauge or measurements of the finished project. The one I made above is large enough to fit a child 3 – 10 years old. I know the baby in the original pattern is not even 1 yet. I may have to use a smaller hook or maybe even go down to a Sport yarn.
I used Lion Cotton yarn in Grape.
Let me know what size your bonnet is if you give the pattern a try. I will try again later and see if I can get it smaller.
