This little bonnet is perfect for babies, toddlers, and even preschoolers. It is simple to knit, cute, and warm. It is lovely as a simple stockinette bonnet in any color. You can also incorporate a lace, Fair Isle, or cable pattern into the bonnet body.

The sizes above are based on the following head circumferences: 16.5” (17.25”, 18”, 19”, 20”).

Though I have knitted these bonnets using cascade 220 yarns, any worsted weight should work just fine.
