The Angel Bonnet is beautifully soft with an interesting texture and structure created by the combining of 2 fabulous yarns and an unusual construction.
This piece is knitted in 2 parts. A cabled rope headband is knitted first and then the lovely cabled crown is knitted up integrally from the headband.
The hat requires 2 strands of the BFL knitted with 1 strand of the linen/cotton…alternatively i strand of chunky yarn with a cotton or linen boucle could be used. I button to finish off.
