Description

Wiksten's Animal Bonnet is both a totally adorable everyday kid hat, as well as a key component in the dress-up box. The pattern includes instructions to make a fox, lamb, and fawn, depending on how you sew the ears to the hat. A perfect one-skein project, the samples shown are knit from a single skein of Purl Soho’s Flax Down, Cashmere Merino Bloom, and Woolfolk’s Sno. Wiksten considers this pattern for advanced beginners.
