The Julia Bonnet




Good morning all and welcome to day 18.
Today's bonnet is so sweet and lovely, and one of my favourite larger ones. The Julia Bonnet is sized to fit 38 weeks gestation. If you add one more increase round, and add another repeat of rows 10 and 11 it will fit a full term newborn.
I used Caron simply baby, which is just so soft and squishy. Its a fantastic yarn for little heads.
