This bonnet is so simple, but so sweet! Construction incorporates the basics of heirloom sewing by machine: joining lengths of lace and Swiss entredeux insertion with a tiny zig zag stitch. A ruffle of wide Swiss edging, rolled and whipped to the fancy band, frames the baby's face. A narrow piece of Swiss Nelona is rolled and whipped to the back. It is then gathered with ribbon run through a narrow casing.
Let’s face it, everyone has seen these somewhere and tried a version whether knit or crochet. A couple of years ago, before I found Ravelry, I saw a knit pair and tried to make it in crochet. Many attempts by trial and error have led to these notes. (Many attempts that probably could have been avoided if I had found Ravelry earlier.)
