The Nora Bonnet

Good morning all and welcome to day 4, and the 4th pattern! Today's pattern, the Nora bonnet, is super sweet, and actually reversible! I've picked one side to show off, but you can use whichever you prefer, both are equally stunning. This one was made using bamboo yarn, which I just love. It has the most amazing drape and softness to it. Its a little hard to pick up in the photo, but it has the most dainty texture to it.
