Choose approximately 25-30 yards in a contrasting color for the edging and bonnet ties of the two-toned bonnet for even more aesthetic appeal.

With minimal effort, this gender-neutral, crochet bonnet is ideal for gifts, family photos or walks in the park.

I truly wanted to capture the classic style of a vintage sewn linen bonnet in a crochet pattern. Inspired by a dappled horse’s spots and the drape of a willow tree, the culmination of the bonnet’s simplistic, classic design was formed. Bonnets are versatile in that they are meant to be worn indoors as well as outdoors. Your guys and girls will be clad for every activity from play dates to nature walks. So grab your favorite hook and choose the perfect yarn.

When worked up, the stitch definition of Lion Brand’s 24/7 Cotton yarn is eye catching. 24/7 Cotton is soft, breathable and lightweight, making it a wonderful fiber option for the dappled willow bonnet.
