This animal bonnet will add a whimsical touch to a child’s wardrobe or spark imagination as a costume in the dress up box. The pattern includes instructions to make a fox, lamb, or fawn depending upon how the ears are sewn to the hat.

  • The bonnet is knit flat to begin, and then the stitches are joined and worked in the round for the crown shaping.
  • The ties are made from an I-cord applied to the neck edge.
  • Ears are knit separately in the round on dpns and sewn to the top of the hat after the hat is complete.
  • Samples shown are size 1-2yr and size 3-4yr
