These bonnets were named "Dory & Nemo"... as at first look, they reminded me of a fishtail braid! A classic and simple cable bonnet for your newborn!

I consider these hats a moderate skill level. Must be comfortable knitting a basic cable & doing the kitchener stitch!

I love Alpaca for its shiny softness and allergy friendly fibers!
