Find the INEXPENSIVE AD-FREE PDF for this pattern on Etsy HERE.

A little over one year ago today I gave birth to this sweet little babe you see pictured here. He was small, quiet, and absolutely beautiful. Today he is a big toddler and brings tears to my eyes! I remember making him this bonnet on the way to his first doctors appointment because I wanted to take photos of him wearing something I made. So here we are, one year later and I am FINALLY posting the pattern for you here on the blog.

Notes:

Fits average newborns 11”-13” head circumference.

Finished bonnet should measure approx. 6.5” Wide and 5” tall when lying flat before cinched with tie.

If you are new to the Puff Stitch here is a great tutorial I found on Youtube! (I am in no way affiliated with this link) - https://youtu.be/XjB3nBhbUJw
