10. Sadie Preemie Bonnet
Good morning lovelies and welcome to day 10! We've hit double digits now, how exciting!
How are you coming along with the hats so far? On target to reach your goals? I am!
Today's pattern is the first bonnet for the year, and boy is it a pretty one. The stitches in this bonnet remind me a little of leaves. It looks complicated, but I promise it isn't, just take it slow if your new to decreases and you'll do great. Also, it's worth noting to take care when counting the skip 3 on row 5, don't count the stitch you worked the sc into.
I do love bonnets so much! They are just adorable. They also have the advantage of being able to fit a larger size range, which is always handy.
I havn't tested this at a larger size yet, but I suspect that if you add one more increase round, and an extra repeat of rows 6-7 you should get newborn size. I'll come back and update when I have time to try it.
