Florence has all the sweetness and cute factor that you’d expect from a baby bonnet. As a singleitem she is irrepressibly divine but when teamed with her sister pattern, Granny’s Favourite, you have the most heart-melting cute duo around.

Florence is knit seamlessly beginning at the front of the bonnet. Lace, garter stitch and i-cord combines to create a quick knit that hits the spot for those go-to gift knits.

Florence is a seamless bonnet that is constructed from the front to the back. The stitches framing the face are worked first. The back of the bonnet is then shaped using decreases similar to a sock heel. Stitches are picked up along the bottom of the bonnet to complete the edging. Finally i-cord and applied i-cord are worked to finish the bonnet.

Six sizes to fit size range from Premmie to Child.
