Jemima is an unashamedly vintage / old fashioned baby Bonnet. Sometimes Jemima looks positively Elizabethan given the chance with a bit of vintage linen and lace. Ideal as a christening bonnet / fancy outfit bonnet or just for everyday if you’re that way inclined. As you can see, Wendy was unstoppable once more with the pompoms.
The front band for Jemima is worked first, then stitches picked up along one edge and the crown knitted flat onto the band. The ties and i-cord edging are then worked onto the bottom edge of the bonnet.
We’ve collaborated with Town End Alpacas on this little collection of baby / toddler garments and accessories. Town End Alpacas is based up in the North West of England in the heart of the Lake District (hence the names for this mini collection). They produce yarn from their herd of beautiful alpacas in proper alpaca fleece colours and we have to say it’s some of the most gorgeous alpaca we’ve ever used, soft and warm and just as nice as cashmere.
1(1, 1) x 50g ball, shown in Light Mid Fawn DK.
3.75mm nds, plus a couple of dpns (or a dpn and a circ) for working the i-cord ties and edging.
