Once you got those ( super easy to learn....) tiny cables handled... this bonnet is a quick knit an a fun little project, even for beginners and not very advanced knitters!
The bonnet is knitted in one piece, all you need to sew on is the i-cords.
Also- it comes with my specific back-of-the-head shape, that will allow a snug, close fit around the neck, where most other bonnet constructions tend to "gap"...
All methods needed (like knitting short rows, the cable details, the back of the head etc.) are explained in detail with photographs and text.
To me - this is the perfect bonnet for a special occasion ( a wedding, a christening etc) or as a gift for a mum-to-be... or ( if you use a bit of a more rustique, darker yarn...) for every day, just adding a little special something and some sweet vintage touch to any outfit of your baby....
originally designed for my own little Isidor when he was around 5 months old, it may still be ... my favorite bonnet-knit ever! ! The cabled front border is such an eyecatcher (...although it actually is so easy to knit...) and it makes that front edge perfectly elastic: no wind will pass through. It will keep babies‘ front and tiny ears oh so cozy and will make its little face shine so bright!
