Merci pour le patron! J`ai aimé le faire. Voici un lien vers le chapeau de mon petit. 🙂 http://www.crozette.com/2014/11/purl-bee-baby-lamb-bonnet.html vous pouvez utiliser ces balises et attributs HTML:

The 0-3 month size is meant to fit an average size baby up to 3 months, so it could be a tad big coming home from the hospital. But, that said, many kids aren’t “average” so it’s hard to say. Both of my girls were born with very large heads and this size would have fit them perfectly straight away, whereas other babies are born quite small and would be swimming in it! If you have an inkling of where the baby will fall on the size spectrum, I would size the hat with that in mind. Have made 3 of these lovely little bonnets. They are so cute and cosy. I would love to be able to tweak the pattern slightly to make them with press stud type clips under the chin, rather than ties, but not sure how to work out under chin strap lengths in the various sizes. Gorgeous pattern, thanks 🙂 These are enough materials to make 2 hats for sizes 0-3 or 3-6 months; or 1 hat for sizes 6-12, 12-18 or 18-24 months.

Thanks for writing in! This hat would make a great costume for older kids, and can absolutely be sized up. I thought I recognized this, then I laughed when I saw your comment! xo Yes, we always recommend pre-washing and drying any cotton fabric. Just wash and dry it as you will once the hat is done. So, if you tend to wash things on a warm cycle go ahead and do that and just dry it how you would dry anything else. Using your preferred fabric marking tool or pins, transfer the marked lines on the Hat Side template to the right side of the two Hat Sides cut from the Outer Fabric. Use ¼-inch seam allowances unless otherwise noted. Yarn 85 (100, 120, 140, 175) yds DK weight yarn (samples shown in Hedgehog Fibers Merino DK in ‘genie’ , Hedgehog Fibers Skinny Singles in ‘monarch’ and La Bien Aimee Merino Twist Sock in ‘pop grunge’ - sock yarns held doubled) Note: if using sock yarn held double, double the required yardage listed above I am inquiring about sizing. For an inquiry on corresponding sizes in inches for the Baby Sunbonnet, you listed head sizes. Are these the same measurements that would be for the Winter Baby Bonnet? Or does this bonnet run a bit larger? I am interested in the two largest sizes and you noted the head measurements: Size 12-18 months – 18 inches Size 18-24 months – 19 inches. Thank you for your kind words! I’m so glad you like the pattern. Best of luck, and please let us know how the Fox Bonnet turns out!

Required fields are marked * Hello, I ordered the kit for this adorable hat in black. Would you recommend pre-washing the two fabrics? If so, what are the washing instructions for the fabric and for the finished hat? Thank you! I see this is an older post, but I have a question. The instructions say the grainline is parallel to the selvage, but in your picture, the selvage appears to be the bottom edge (running left to right in the photo) and the grainline arrow on the pattern is running perpendicular (top to bottom in the photo). Should the pattern be positioned as in the picture, or should the grainline arrow be positioned parallel to the selvage? NOTE: The two Hat Sides shown above have their right sides facing up.
