Revisiting Crochet

What a fun project to crochet a bonnet for our neighbour's precious baby girl Camilla.  Winter evenings are perfect for handwork. As I worked on this dreamy pink number I tripped into memories of making crochet hats for my kids.

Crochet bonnet. Soft cotton blend yarn from France. Fun pointy crown detail.

Oh did I get sentimental so I had to find a photo of my daughter Maxine in hers. A range of multi-coloured wool and cotton yarns were worked in a variety of stitches and a dotty green grosgrain ribbon was woven in along the edge. There is a big pom pom hanging from the crown but alas no photo showing it.

Here are the girls ...
