I have a sweet friend who is also a very talented photographer. She loves newborn photography and has commissioned me to crochet and felt different items for the newborns that come into her studio. One of these items is of course, an adorable bonnet 😊 I decided that I would like to design one for her and she absolutely loved it!
Now I am sharing the pattern with you so you can make this soft, squishy bonnet for a little one in your life or for those “oh so cute” newborn photographs!
Yarn is Stitch Studio by Nicole- Chateau (super bulky)
Hook- N/P 10 mm
Begin by leaving a very long tail for seaming

row 2- ch 2 turn, * 1 fpdc in next st, 1 bpdc in next st*, repeat from * across
row 3- ch 2 turn, * 1 bpdc in next st, 1 fpdc in next st*, repeat from * across
Repeat rows 2 & 3- 2 more times, (7rows total)
