I wanted a lovely, lacy bonnet that was fast to knit for my baby girl. The lace design is simple, and reminds me a bit of lilac flowers (the colour helps, too). The ties are i-cord, but if you wanted to skip that you could easily sew some ribbon to the edge instead. Enjoy!
These little preemie sized bear cub hats came about when my daughter requested something for her twin sons to wear during their stay in the NICU. The pattern can easily be made larger, for newborn or older babies, by sizing up on yarn and needles.
