Today's bonnet features a little bow and stripe in contrasting colours, giving it just enough pop! This bonnet would be great for using up brighter scraps of variegated yarns!

Take a long piece of CC yarn and tie it around the center of the rectangle, this will pull the sides in creating a bow. Tie a knot in the back to keep it in place. Wrap the yarn around the center of the bow a few times and then tie a knot in the back to keep the loops tight and in place. Sew the bow to the side of the bonnet. Weave in tails.
