Save to My Favorites

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. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
