Crochet Baby Bonnets and accessories for babies, are so fun to make, and I just love to be able to delight an expectant mother, with a personal and handmade maternity gift. I designed this Crochet Baby Bonnet as an accessory for the very popular Crochet Baby Cardigan, and together they make the perfect little set, that fit both little boys and girls.
The bonnet is very easy to to make, and the pattern is suited for beginners. It is started from the back of the head, with a magic circle, from which it expands with increasing rounds of double crochet.
