Baby Bear Bonnet
Join Wendy to make this precious hat
The Baby Bear Bonnet is a baby bonnet with cute rounded bear ears.
The bonnet is worked back and forth: you begin at the band, which you can make either in moss stitch or ribbed, and continue in stockinette stitch to the bear ears.
The bear ears are shaped at the same time as you work to the crown. You then place the bear ear stitches on hold, and shape the back of the bonnet to the neck, by working short rows and decreases. The bonnet has an I-cord edge and I-cord strings to tie it up.
This class will concentrate on the short row shaping, kitchener stitch, and I-cord edging.
Materials: 1 skein each Knitting for Olive Merino and Knitting for Olive Mohair; pattern (found on Ravelry); US 4 and US 6 needles for working flat (16"or 24"will work); stitch markers
