Fresh Bonnet is designed to fit newborn babies for the first few months of their lives, with a larger size for babies aged 3-6 months. It is a light and airy bonnet knit in DK weight yarn, light enough to wear out in the sun but just warm enough for those chilly air-conditioned stores and restaurants. This is a very quick knit and can easily be completed in an evening, making it a perfect last-minute shower gift. The bonnet is worked in one piece by picking up stitches, and thus requires no seaming. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting flat Picking up stitches Making i-cord GAUGE 5.5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 0-3 months 3-6 months SUGGESTED YARN 75 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Bernat Softee Baby

My name is Kylie and I'm a student living in Canada. I've been knitting for 10 years, if you ask my family, I'm sure they'll tell you I'm completely obsessed! Some of my favourite yarns are locally dyed and spun yarns from here in Canada. I blog over at Apart from knitting, I love reading and photography. I currently shoot with a Nikon D3100 and two lenses (18-55mm 3.5-5.6 and 35mm 1.8).
