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.

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked in the round to construct the back of the bonnet. After round 5, you will work in rows to create the rest of the bonnet using the shell stitch.

This pattern recommends you begin working in the round with the magic ring. If you are unfamiliar withe the magic ring, I recommend you take a look at my tutorial for the magic ring. If you struggle with the magic ring and prefer a different method, have a look at my tutorial for the alternative magic ring.
