Kody's Old Fashion Bonnet Hat Pattern
I love the look of bonnet style hats but there are not many for adults unless you look at vintage patterns that call for knitting with thread and microscopic needles. This bonnet is super simple to knit, and knits up extremely fast. Even the most inexperienced knitter can make this hat! It is a great project to break away from scarves but still make something neat with dimension to it. Make one for yourself or a friend but please do not sell them and if you share the pattern please share the link and not the pattern itself.
- Less than one skein Red Heart Worsted Weight Yarn or any other worsted weight yarn
- Size 8 straight knitting needles
- Tapestry needle
Gauge: (I know folks this is a shocker but I actually used gauge on this hat) 4.5 sts x 6 rows= 1" x 1"
To Make Bonnet:
Cast on 90 stitches
5 rows seed stitch
Knit in stockinette for 6 inches keeping the first and last five stitches in seed stitch
Bind off 30 stitches at the beginning of the next two rows. You will be left with 30 sts in the middle.
Continue in stockinette stitch until the length is equal to the length of the stockinette stitch on the bound off edge.
5 rows seed stitch- Bind off
Sew sides of smaller section to the bound off edge. Weave in ends
