1920's Baby Bonnet (crochet) New born

Stormy Stewart


Saw a picture of this cute kid in a beanie with a large flower on the top (but off center a little) and was thinking it was so cute. Well it was either start learning to read stitches (which I really have no desire) or recreate it. So here it is.

It was way too easy and took about 30 minutes including the flower

30 Min


No-Cook or Other


leftover skeins of yarn
crochet hook (i used a j hook)but kept the stitches tight

Directions Step-By-Step

Note: I picked up only the back top stitch to create each row. This gave it a line effect for each row. Remember this is for the entire hat.
Making a circle
Stitch out 3 stitches and then for the first row go around the original stitches doubling the stitch in each hole. Do that for two more stitches. It will look like a small circle.

Then a row of straight stitching.

From there I added two stitches in one hole, then regular stitch then 2 in one again and continued around that row.

Then a row of straight stitching.

Then add a stitch as you feel it needs and extra until you have 36 stitches and just continue stitching 36 stitches until you get 14 rows and tie off.
For the flower.

I started thinking rose but after completing it looks like a Pansey with three distinct pedals. Could just be in the way it went together. But you could simply row it instead of gather and have a rose.

Stitch 30 stitches. then make one line of stitches and pull end down to close. Now take a piece of yarn and stitch through at the original stitches. pull or gather your choice. I pulled. Then each side is together sew onto the hat with the ends that are attached.
