Baby Bonnet - Preemie - 3 months

Baby Bonnets Free Crochet Pattern

By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

A Fellow Crocheter and Photographer asked me if I could
 design a basic baby bonnet crochet pattern,
that was sized Preemie to 3 months.
Here is what I came up with:

I designed This Baby Bonnet crochet pattern about 5 years ago.
in 3 sizes, Preemie, Newborn and 3 months.
I decided it was time for an update!
And I added the 6 month size.

When I updated The Pattern.
Red Heart Yarn sent me this wonderful yarn.
babyhugs yarn
It has been tested for any harmful substances.
See the seal of Approval!
This yarn comes in Worsted weight (4) 
and Light weight (3) yarn
It is amazingly soft, and glides on the hook easily.
And has really fun colors that blend well together.
As well as the basic pastels.
 For This Bonnet Pattern I used the Light Weight (3)
