Darling Baby Bonnet
One day, for fun, I decided to combine lace, ruffles, a texture pattern and bobbles all in a single pattern…and it worked! The result is an adorable little set which will keep a baby’s extremities warm, while looking making them look absolutely darling at the same time. This pretty little bonnet makes a great gift for newborns and will only take a few hours to knit.
