Bonnet. I think bonnet is one of the loveliest of words. Sort of bonny and wee all rolled into one. Bonnet.
I'm a tight knitter and I launched right into knitting this with no swatch or upsizing of needles so it doesn't actually fit me. (Thankfully, said the ever critical offspring).
It fits the 12 year old son rather well but I'm having a hard time convincing him of the merits of a supersoft chocolate bonnet, complete with little chin ties.
The pattern is Jejeune's rather adorable Pauline, available for free on Ravelry if you have a hankering for a wee bonnet of your own.
Mine is Ravelled here.
