Looking for a lightning-quick, fun knit? This adorable baby bonnet, designed to be a companion piece for my Entrechat shrug ( http://etsy.me/2xpAIDK ), is as practical as it is sweet. Its interesting, fun construction and distinctive textured pattern in the front will make you want to make one in every color… and every yarn weight if you want to: two additional yarn weights, fingering ( http://etsy.me/2y2KpoL ) and worsted ( http://etsy.me/2xE7eTC ) are available, and you can get all three versions at once if you purchase the eBook!
