CrissCross Bonnet

A crisscross bonnet, designed for a 3-6 month baby and is ideal for when they are starting to sit up and take notice of things around them.

As well as keeping those little ears warm this is delightful to make and will match other patterns in my crisscross range.

I have made it in a main color with a contrast edging, but you can use use a solid colour if you wish.
