Hats are super-quick when baby-sized - in this case about four hours. To knit baby hats is so satisfying and these bonnets always make the most perfect gift.

The style works for boys and girls, so you can start it before the baby is born even if you don´t know the sex, as long as you choose your color combination carefully. This baby bonnet is knitted in an easy, repetitive brioche stitch pattern, shaped by very few increases and decreases. I love that this bonnet is constructed without any seams. But why stop at just one? Baby could have different color combination for each day of the week… It´s also very beautiful inside out.

The pattern is written for three circumference to fit the baby (6-12m), toddler(1-2y) and child (3-4y). When applicable, directions for baby/ toddler, child sizes are written in parentheses as follows: baby (toddler, child ).
