The Bub Bonnet is a bottom-up skull cap design with regular decreases at the top of the head, ribbing around the face, and an i-cord edging along the bottom that grows into neck ties.

It is important to me that this pattern is finacially accessible and so for low-income customers, this pattern can be purchased at 50% off using the code ‘LOW50’. This is an honours system - please respect that I also am trying to make a living from my designs and if you can afford the full price I’d appreciate if you paid it.

You will need:
2.75mm / US 2 40cm / 16in circular needles and your preferred needles for working small circumferences (horns and i-cord).

3.75mm / US 5 40cm / 16in circular needles and your preferred needles for working small circumferences (for crown of hat)

Tapestry needle

Waste yarn

Pins

Yarn:
I used Ginger Twist Studio Sheepish DK (100% wool, 225m / 246yds per 100g)
But this pattern will work with any lightweight DK that can achieve gauge- I’d recommend wool or acrylic.

Yardage:
Bonnet only: 55g (123m / 136yds)

Horns only: 20g (45m / 50yds)

Gauge:
Bonnet: 22 sts and 30 rows per 10cm / 4in in stocking stitch, using 3.75mm needles

Horns: 27 sts and 39 rows per 10cm / 4in in stocking stitch, using 2.75mm needles

Sizing:
This is a hat for adults but also fits most children 4+. Since it has an adjustable tie it can be worn by most head sizes without adjustment- it is one size.

Hope you enjoy!!
