The Dreamcatcher Bonnet features a delicate and intricate combination of stitches adorning the front of this bonnet to create a beautiful pattern that echoes the feeling of traditional Dreamcatchers.
Instructions are included for shaping the back of the bonnet in your preferred method – join and work in the round, or knit flat and stitch a short seam. The bonnet is sized to fit the average brand new baby in their first 2 weeks, weighing approximately 7 – 9 pounds.
