Mauda Bonnet

Last winter I knit up the bonnet from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. The pattern photo was so cute and the yarn was a dream to work with. However, the finished bonnet wasn't as close fitting as I wanted. It gets C-O-L-D here in Wisconsin and I hoped for something that would fit closer to the neck, to prevent the snow and cold from creeping up to the top of little heads.

After trying to modify the bonnet post-knitting, I decided to knit up a new one and make a few modifications along the way. The result is my Mauda Bonnet.

If you are interested in my modifications you can find them on my ravelry projects page (I got permission from Joelle Hoverson to post my mods there). This bonnet should fit kiddos 9-18 mos. and it's been knit up at least twice by other knitters without any problems. If you use the mods leave me a comment below, or on ravelry, and happy knitting!

Oh, this bonnet looks so sweet Beth! Well done on not giving up but trying again. So odd to be in the middle of November here and yet we spent the afternoon on the beach, Stella with just a nappie!

I love this! Makes me wish I had a little girl head to knit for. Thanks for sharing it - I'll bookmark it for the next baby-girl gift.
