My new scalloped edge bonnet knitting pattern is so adorable on any newborn, baby or toddler, it’s also a quick and easy knit!
Honestly, after working up this Scalloped Edge Bonnet knitting pattern, you guys might need to stage a bonnet intervention. I may start knitting nothing but baby bonnets. I might have to change my name to Little Red Baby Bonnet…
I mean seriously?! There’s something so sweet about bonnets and chubby cheeks. I just can’t even handle it! Plus, I’m not going to lie, a chin tie makes everyone’s life easier. Just please, if you knit up this scalloped edge bonnet, please use common sense, don’t tie the chin straps too tight and never leave baby unattended while wearing it. Safety first!
Anyway, I ran across a similar scalloped edge knit stitch in my facebook feed recently and thought immediately that it would look so cute as a scalloped edge bonnet. And I was right. I couldn’t use that exact stitch pattern because the stitch counts didn’t work out for me, but after some extensive trial and error I have a new scalloped edge stitch for knitting that works (and is actually easier than the original)! Please be advised though that it has a tendency to curl up so you will definitely want to block this bonnet before wearing!
