Cherry Blossom Bonnet - new pattern

Just a few short weeks ago, the trees were full of spring blossoms. 


To my mind, the appearance of cherry blossoms, and the pink petals raining down in a gust of wind is confirmation of spring; of warmer weather; of birthday parties (I was an April baby) and Easter egg indulgence; of wandering in the long grass and building dens in the nearby fields; of freckles on your nose & forehead; of climbing trees and peering out from the leafy canopies.

Inspired by these pink masses of petals, I have released the Cherry Blossom Bonnet pattern.  This bonnet is intended to keep your little one warm during the winter months, while reminding you that spring will come!
The bonnet uses two skeins of Jamieson & Smith 2 ply jumper weight, one each in shades FC50 and 43. It is knit in the round, with a steek; the top is grafted together; the steek is cut and then the bonnet is finished with an edging of garter stitch and i-cord. It is available in two sizes (up to 12 months and up to 24 months). However, its shape will fit a range of head sizes as the little one grows.
The pattern is available on Ravelry, or as a download.
