Edith Bonnet - Free Crochet Pattern




Good morning lovlies! This weeks pattern is for a fancy little bonnet. It may look a little complicated but it is a super easy pattern and Im sure even beginners will be able to attempt this beauty. It comes in 2 sizes, prem 24-26 weeks gestation, and Newborn (full term) I have only tried this with a variety of pinks and whites so far but I bet it will look amazing in all sorts of fantastic colour combinations.




For 24-26 weeks you will need:
DK weight/8ply/Light worsted yarn in a main colour and contrasting colour (you can also use 4ply/fingering  for contrast if you want it thinner, just stitch loosely)
4mm hook

1: ch3, dc in the first ch 9 times, join
2: ch3, 2dc in each stitch around, join
3: ch3, *2dc in the first stitch, dc in the next stitch*, repeat around, join.
4: ch3, *2dc in the first stitch, dc in the next 2 stitches*, repeat around, do not join.
5: ch2, turn, hdc in the front loops only of each stitch around.
6-8: ch3, turn, dc in each stitch around.
9: ch2, turn, hdc in the front loops only of each stitch around
10: ch2, turn, hdc in each stitch around, do not turn
11: sc evenly around the neck line of the bonnet. End off yarn.

Hold bonnet so the front is facing you, and the rear is pointing away. Join yarn to an unworked loop on the left side of round 5 with a sl st. sc into the same stitch. *hdc 3 times in the next loop, sl st into the next loop* repeat across, sc into the last back loop. End off.

Join your yarn in the same manner to the unworked loop from round 9 and sc in the same stitch, *dc 3 times in the next loop, sl st into the next loop* repeat around, sc in the last loop. End off.

With your contrasting colour, join the yarn to the first sc on the front ruffles. *Sc into each of the 3 dc's, sc over the top of the sl st (there will be a gap below each sl st from the previous row, use that to complete the sc)* repeat across, sc in the last sc. End off.

With contrasting colour, chain 40, join yarn to a corner of round 10 and sc in each stitch across until you get to the second last stitch, ch1, sl st into the last stitch, chain 40 and end off.

Weave in all ends.
