This cute little bonnet is the perfect thing for your little girl! Worked up to mimic her favorite Frozen princess, or for just plain dress up with any color hair, this hat will definitely be a hit. If you would like an every day hat, just leave the hair off and it makes an adorable bonnet on its own. And the best part – it works up in a couple hours! Perfect for last minute gifts!
Techniques:This pattern uses basic crochet stitches worked in turned rows. It is a great pattern for beginning crocheters! The bonnet is comprised exclusively of chain stitches, single crochets, half-double crochets, and slip stitches.
