Hdc puff st: YO, pull up a stitch 5 times, pull through 10 loops on hook, YO, pull through final 2 loops.
Cross st: sk st, dc in next st, cross over st just made and dc in skipped st.
Shell = 4 dc in same st
Working in the 3rd loop of hdc: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.
Seed Stitch: alternate sc and dc stitches across the designated row or partial row, then on the next row work a dc stitch in the sc stitch from the previous row, and a sc stitch in the dc stitch from the previous row.

14 cross stitches in 4”, 3 rows of cross stitches is 1” tall.

Newborn: 5.5” by 5.5” excluding ties
6 months: 6.25” x 6.25”, excluding ties
12-24 Months: 7” x 7” excluding ties

Additional Notes:
-The bonnet is worked flat in a “T”, and then the bottom of the T is joined to the “arms” at the top by sc. This creates a very classic baby bonnet shape that is more well-known in the knitting world. If you prefer to sew the seam instead of joining it with sc, you may.
-Stitch counts are unimportant for the bottom--only your placement matters.
-This pattern is easily adjustable! It is worked in multiples of 4 + 6, + 1, plus 1 more for the turning chain.
