Sea Life Bonnet is for babies and toddlers.

A textured, slip-stitch bonnet reminiscent of fish scales. The stitch pattern is surprisingly easy to work, yet has a real ‘wow’ factor when the bonnet is presented as a gift.

This pattern is written for 3 weights of yarn: 4ply/fingering, 5ply/sport, and 8ply/dk, plus it caters to both those that like to work seamlessly in the round, and those that don’t…clear instructions are included within the pattern for both options!

Each of the yarn weights is written for 5 sizes:
x-small (small newborn/prem, or estimated birthweight of 2.8kg - 3.2kg)
small (birth - 3 months)
medium (3 months - 1 year)
large (1 year - 3 years)
x-large (3 years +)

This is the second pattern in the Bunches of Bonnets eBook.
