Back in the 1970’s, I had a Holly Hobbie rag doll. Recently, while reminiscing, I recalled the clothing and immediately knew I had to make a prairie, pioneer style bonnet like the one she wore.

The bonnet is designed to fit a 35 cm (14”) head making it perfect as a newborn photo prop. Included, to finish the ensemble, are a dinky pair of ‘simple’ legwarmers.

YOU WILL NEED 250 m of DK yarn (light Aran/WW will also work if you take care with gauge), a 3.50 mm hook, one stitch marker, a 1 m/yd length of ribbon and a needle for neatening ends.

GAUGE: 9sts and 10 rows to 5 cm (2”) in UK dc - measured across peak.
