Wiksten Animal Bonnet


This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern  


This knitting pattern is quite possibly the cutest wee bonnet for little people (approx 0-6 year olds) .  The bonnet is a whimsical design featuring animal ears - choose between a fox, lamb or fawn.  Or opt for a classic and simple look by omitting the ears. 

  • The bonnet is knit flat to begin, and then the stitches are joined and worked in the round for the crown shaping.
  • The ties are made from an I-cord applied to the neck edge.
  • Ears are knit separately in the round on dpns and sewn to the top of the hat after the hat is complete.
