Classic Lace Bonnet (Free Crochet Pattern)

by - March 20, 2020


Dear fellow crocheters,

I'm thrilled to share my newest crochet design with you: the Classic Lace Bonnet!


The Classic Lace Bonnet is a sweet vintage style hat that will make your little girl look absolutely precious.  Easy to put on and wear, it is practical, comfortable, and keeps heads warm!  It is the perfect accessory and fits newborn babies from 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, to smaller toddlers at 2 years old.  

This particular design features a beautiful, textured look using simple stitches.  It's a lot of fun to crochet and works up quite quickly, yet yields a fancy-looking result! 


I also added a lacy trim, which makes the edges have a vintage style to it.  Kind of gives it a fairytale look, don't you think?  The traditional feel of this bonnet doesn’t go out of fashion and will always trend with the more modern and contemporary pieces.  It will make the perfect gift for baby showers, birthdays, holidays, craft fairs, and the like!



I must also mention how much I loved working with the soft Red Heart Amore yarns!  I used the colors 'Chamomile' (white), and 'Peaceful' (pink).  I just loved the muted feel of these pastel colors.  It gives the finished bonnet a really gentle look!



Anyhow, this is a relatively quick and easy pattern to work up, and it's done completely in one piece (no sewing)!  You’ll have fun crocheting this special handmade gift for your little one, or as a sentimental and heartfelt newborn baby shower gift for an expecting mom.  It will surely be treasured for years to come~
