This adorable baby bonnet knitting pattern features a row of colorful colorwork hearts and cute and functional chin ties!
You guys, how have a never knit a colorwork bonnet before?! I love bonnet knitting, I mean, I definitely prefer knitting in the round (which is why I design so dang many hats), but there’s something soothing about regular old straight knitting needles and they gentle rhythm of knit and purl rows.
You know what I mean?
I do have a basic heart hat pattern and that is super cute! But bonnets have other advantages to them. For example, bonnets are amazing at keeping tiny little ears warm.
Bonnets are also awesome because they have chin ties which makes them easier for your little sweetheart to remove without parental authorization (you know what I mean).
I also thing bonnets have a little bit of vintage charm to them that I just love. I’m definitely team bonnet for sure.
If you’ve never knit a baby bonnet knitting pattern before OR don’t have a lot of experience with colorwork, this heart bonnet pattern is a great place to start, it’s easy and there are only 8 rows of stranded colorwork knitting which is just enough to practice your tension and not so much that you start to get stressed out with it.
If you knit a heart bonnet, be sure to share it with me over on Ravelry, I love seeing what you guys knit!
