My husband and I have been Amazon Prime members for years. We order all of our household supplies, gifts, crochet supplies and even some food items from Amazon. We wouldn’t be able to save money if we had to pay for shipping. Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on eligible Prime items plus a ton of other perks such as free movie and TV show streaming and free music streaming.
If you’ve been thinking about getting an Amazon Prime membership, how about you start with a free 30-day trial on me? It’s the least I can do for your support!
Gauge and Sizing
4 sts x 3 rows = 2″ square worked in half double crochet
- Ch – Chain
- Hdc – Half Double Crochet
To print a list of all crochet abbreviations to keep in your crochet notebook, check out my quick guide here:
This pattern is worked as a solid rectangle and sewn together to make the shape. Tassels can be added optionally or they can be substituted for pompoms. The pattern is written in terms of the new born size. Other sizing options are available and will be indicated in parenthesis where necessary. The order is as follows:
(3-6 mos, 9-12 mos)
Row one: Ch 27 (31, 39). Hdc in second chain from hook and in each remaining chain.
Row two: Ch 2 (counts as stitch) and turn. Hdc in each stitch.
Repeat row 2 for a total of 7 (9, 11) rows. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Fold your work in half lengthwise. With a large darning needle, sew up the back side of the bonnet (along your foundation chain edge). Weave in your ends.
Make the tassels and secure them to each corner of the bonnet.
