Crochet Sunflower Baby Bonnet
Recently I hooked up a Sunflower Square that I got the idea to turn it into a baby bonnet. I've wanted to make a Crochet Sunflower Baby Bonnet for a while now but I originally wanted something a little more 3D with layers but when I got this new idea I had to get started right away. Friday night, poured myself a drink and in about 2 hours I hooked up this adorable baby bonnet.
The bonnet pattern is made for a baby size between 3-9 month depending on the size of the baby. I'm sure if you played with the gauge on this one you could probably make a newborn size. Maybe a 4.5mm hook would work? If you try it out, please let me know your results by hook'n up on Ravelry.
This morning I was trying to find a way to take a picture of this bonnet without a live model, it's all I needed to publish this pattern. Normally I would use my wine glass but thought I'd ask to see what other people used. As I got talking with people I got the idea to use my fisher price apple. Maybe one day I will get a nice doll, I'll have to save up for one of them.
