16. The Robin Bonnet

Morning all and welcome to day 16. We're now onto the bonnet portion of the months patterns!
The first one I have for you today is both tiny and easy. So easy in fact, that I can now make these in about 15 minutes flat! Now that's what I call some fast hookin'! These itty bonnets are perfect for using up the last few meters of yarn and can be made in so many colours!
