Modelled by Miss Mushroom! It's easy peasy and oh so cute as a photog prop! It will fit newborns best within the first 14 days but can be used for bubs up to 1 month old. For this hat we'll be working in rounds. Repeat between ** each round and remember to move your stitch marker each round so you know where to end and begin. You'll need:
- a 4.5mm crochet hook
- a stitch marker
- yellow 8 ply yarn
- white 8 ply mohair (or 8 ply white yarn)
Starting with a magic circle and your yellow yarn, chain 3 (counts as first dc) and work 11 dc into ring, close do NOT join.
Round 1: 2 dc in each st around
Round 2: In 3rd chain of beginning dc work 2 dc. *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st*
Round 3: *1 dc in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st*
Round 4: *1 dc in next 3 sts, 2 dc in next st*
Round 5: Ch 3, turn. 1 dc in next 50 sts leaving remaining 13 unworked. Ch 3, turn.
Round 6: 1 dc in next 50 sts. Ch 3, turn.
Round 7: 1 dc in next 50 sts. Ch 3, turn.
Round 8-11: 1 dc in next 50 sts. Finish off with yellow.
Using white yarn, join to last st made, working along front of bonnet: Ch 3, 2 dc in same st, sl st to next st, skip one stitch, *3 dc in next st, sl st to next, skip 1 st* Finish off. Weave in ends.
For the Ties:
Using white yarn, chain 55. 1 sc in second ch from hook and in each st along. Finish off. Repeat for second tie. Weave in ends and sew to either side of bonnet.
