Lemon Peel Crochet Baby Bonnet.
This super cute baby bonnet is made as an accessory to the Lemon Peel Crochet baby Romper. Together they make the cutest little outfit, and I am absolutely in love with the style of this gorgeous set. The beautiful texture of the Lemon Peel Stitch, look a lot like Knit and is also more lightweight than many other Crochet Stitches, almost like knit stitches.
The Bonnet is made in wonderfully soft Drops Cotton Merino. Which makes it super comfortable next to sensitive baby skin.
This pattern is very easy and even well suited for beginners.
