Before the development of the railroad, people relied on covered wagons like the Conestoga to travel the Appalachian Valley. The Conestoga Bonnet revives old time carriage dress into the modern era.

Skill level: This medium-level pattern is knit flat and then joined in the round. The lace brim is knit first, then finishes with crown shaping. You’ll need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, pick up stitches, and follow written instructions.

Bonnet Measurements: 18” 20,” 22” OR 46 51, 56 cm

Pictured: Child Size in grey, Adult Small in pale pink, and Adult Medium in hot pink.
