Finally, the Goddess of Craft has heard my prayers, and the God of Hats has bestowed his long-awaited gift upon the world.
It comes in sizes for babies, children, and most importantly, adults. Can you not hear the chorus of angels singing in the background? I’ve wanted a bonnet pattern for so long, for knitting or sewing, I did not care, but all I could find were patterns for babies, vintage adult patterns too difficult to understand, or crochet patterns. I have nothing against crochet but my hands are just completely unable to manage the hooking technique, I have tried several times to no avail, but I can’t work it out.
The Flickr group for Amy Karol’s mailorder club has several lovely interpretations. I like this cordroy one, this blue one with a pink ribbon, and this one in butterfly fabric. When I get the pattern I want to make one in purple (obviously), with black lace and maybe some beadwork. Hurry up work, send me my moneys!
