Crochet Baby Bonnets are among many of my favorite projects. They are easy and fun to make, and you can make a nice little stack pretty quickly. They are really suitable to use as a maternity gift, and they are just so adorable around a little chubby baby face 🙂
This Crochet Baby Bonnet matches my pattern for Crochet Parisian Cardigan for Baby. Together the two parts make an adorable set that I have made over and over again for my 2 little nieces when they were small. The set brought great happiness 🙂
