Today, I'd like to share this sweet little bonnet pattern with you and
give you a chance to win the newborn size bonnet that I hand crocheted!
and it seems I've gone a bit bonnet crazy.

The bonnet pattern I'm sharing today is a bit more casual and works up really fast.
(Just remember to always supervise a baby wearing a hat that has strings)
