|Princess Bonnet by Linda Castles|
The pattern is a Linda Castles design and can be found on Ravelry here. The bonnet is knit with fingering weight wool and uses short rows for shaping. Knit in creamy white, the bonnet is quite royal, however you could knit it in traditional pale pink or blue to girl or boy it up. Or just go crazy with color for the newborn rock stars out there.
Even though I don't have any little princes or princesses coming into my life any time soon, I just may have to knit at least one of these precious bonnets anyway. Although newborn sized items are fairly quick to knit, it's always nice to have one or two items on hand for emergencies. You know... Those emergencies like when you know you'll need a baby gift in nine months, yet you wait until 20 minutes before the baby shower to start knitting....
Oh, and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
