Baby Bonnet + Crochet Pattern

Infinitely more lovely than a beanie or a cap, and perfectly delightful for a child…these little bonnets are too cute. I prefer the more simple patterns (as opposed to very thick or loopy ones). This was a snap to make — I did it in one sitting and this is only my second attempt at crochet ever!
