I decided whilst making H’s Easter Bonnet that I really ought to make a traditional sun bonnet for S for the summer. Much as I love some of the more contemporary hat styles, the practicality of a bonnet can’t really be beaten. It gives lots of protection from the sun and can’t be pulled off every 30 seconds without a struggle. I was fully intending to draft my own pattern until I came across this free tutorial and pattern from The Purl Bee which was too perfect not to use. I cut the largest size generously for S and then made two in the newborn size in anticipation of the arrival of my friend’s summer babies.
