This listing is for the ELLIOT Bonnet PATTERN ONLY. Please check the shop for ready to ship bonnets.
The Elliot looks great on both boys and girls, makes a wonderful gift, and helps littles transition from seasons and keep them cozy during the coldest months. Bonnets often stay put on babies heads better than a typical beanie, so we love them!
*Knowledge and comfort with the following stitches is recommended. I do not include detailed instructions for completing individual stitches, but there are numerous videos on You Tube that are great resources for this information should you need it. I'm happy to recommend a few should you need them!
Materials: - between 35 and 60 g worsted weight acrylic yarn depending on size (I like “I Love This Yarn” acrylic and can get 3-5 bonnets out of one skein) - 6.5 mm (K/10.5) crochet hook - tapestry needle - scissors
Some have asked why a 6.5mm hook? Honestly, because that’s the hook I learned on and years later it’s still the first one I reach for. It’s what I used when I made up my first bonnet and after doing many trials with baby sizing, I decided to stick with it for this pattern even though it’s unconventional.
Because this is an instant download there are no returns after purchase.
I like this pattern, I just wish I had read the description before purchasing. I do not crochet with such a big hook so I was disappointed to see that it was a 6.5mm. I tried the NB size with cotton yarn and the trim was 11”, not 9” like the instructions. I tried again with a 5mm hook and again it was 11” long. I will try again with lighter weight yarn and I hope 3rd time will be a charm.
