Mae Bonnet by Jennifer WoodSo sweet! These baby bonnets are a simple, very quick project. They are worked all in one piece, only two ends to weave in! The pattern includes directions for a plain Stockinette stitch bonnet and one adorned with flowers. There are 6 sizes, 3 for DK weight yarn and 3 for worsted weight yarn. Perfect for shower gifts and photo props. What a sweet way to use partial skeins in your stash!

This bonnet is made all in one piece; each tie is worked with short rows then bound off, leaving the body stitches between. Both a flower pattern version and a plain stockinette version are included; ties and crown are the same for both versions. There are 3 sizes for both DK and worsted weight yarn; the instructions are the same for both weights. The finished measurements will differ according to yarn weight.
