I have curly hair. and as any curly haired person knows, hats are not our best friends. wintertime usually means i’m wearing a hood, and quite frankly, i’m jealous of all the adorable hats that are sold and being knit up lately. i want something fun.
for a while now, i’ve been talking about how i would LOVE to make a knit or crocheted bonnet to wear during the winter months. complete with a big bow tied under my chin.
the rim around the top doesn’t need to be as big, but this is kinda the look i’m going for. i thought knit up in a nice charcoal grey and burgundy would be a nice compliment to my black coat. it’d be a very stylish way to keep my noggin warm, and my hair from being smushed into obivion by a hat being yanked over my head.
and it’d just be gosh darned cute!
any suggestions on where to start looking? so far all i’ve found are sewn bonnet patterns…is there a nice baby bonnet pattern out there someplace that i can adapt? or is there a knit or crocheted vintage pattern out there for adults?
