Vintage Feel Ripple Bonnet
Today I have a super sweet pattern for you to try out. Its not quite as simple as some of my other patterns, but Im hoping it wont be all that hard either. It is a little bonnet that features a ripple and a bobble. It only has a few rows, so instruction wise its easy enough to read. If you use the same materials and rows as I have, it will fit a bub of 36 weeks gestation, but it is very easy to make it larger or smaller.
How to make a bobble stitch
DK (8ply) yarn
R1: dc in the 4th chain from hook, dc in the next 3 chains *skip 2 chains, dc in the next 4 chains, ch2, dc in the next 4 chains* repeat twice more, skip the next 2 chains, dc in the next 2 chains, 2dc in the next chain and dc in the last chain.
R2: ch3 (counts as a dc), skip 1, dc twice in the next stitch, dc in the next 2 stitches *skip 2 stitches, dc in the next 3 stitches, in the ch2 space (bobble, ch2, bobble), dc in the next 3 stitches* repeat twice more, skip 2 stitches, dc in the next 2 stitches, 2dc in the next stitch, dc in the top of the turning chain.
Repeat R2 10 more times.
Fold your piece in half and sew up the back seam. Turn right way in so seam is on the inside.
On one bottom corner join your yarn and ch2, dc evenly along the entire bottom edge of the bonnet until you reach the other corner.
ch2, turn, dc in each stitch across, back across the bottom edge. End off and weave in all ends.
Cut 3 60cm strands of yarn for each tie. Fold in half, attach to corners and plait to make a braid. You can find more information on doing that HERE
