Bunting Bonnet


The Bunting Bonnet is a fanciful hat for all ages. The fluffy trim is comfy and warm. This hat is best when made with stripes using your stash yarn, but it is a bit of a blank canvas. Try different stripe combinations or use Noro and let your yarn do the work. This is a great hat for inspiring fairy feelings.

This hat is made as a long rectangle, which is folded in half and stitched up the back. Trim and ties are crocheted on afterwards and there is an elastic gather in the back for a comfortable fit. This hat has three sizes.
