I usually write unconventional patterns. This one is classic and traditional (just to keep it outside the box, ha ha!!) Inspired by a machine-fabricated bonnet which my friend's baby wore in the 1970's. I was challenged to see if this beautiful piece could be knitted. Here is the result!!! (sorry, the pictures didn't download right on the instruction page, but they should be OK here on this page) GAUGE approximately 7.5 stitches per inch SUGGESTED YARN 300 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN any sock yarn or fingering weight COLORWAY up to you!!!
