The Dandelion Bonnet

It’s been already a month since the last time I posted an article on the blog, but here I am again! Having had a very limited internet during my practice work (no wifi and an English phone in France), I couldn’t really upload photos or write articles. But now it’s over and I’ll soon be able to go home and get back to my routine.

I mentioned it shortly in my last podcast (11th episode), I worked on a bonnet pattern to go with my first pattern, the Dandelion cardigan, which was released last month. It’s now done! I’m proud and happy to show you my second knitting pattern: the Dandelion bonnet.

The Dandelion Bonnet has the same characteristics as the cardigan of the same name: ribs torsos border, and a nice dandelion point on the body. It ends in a crown of diminution which takes the head well, and the finishing of the neck is made in the chord, then tied under the chin.

The pattern is knitted with the same gauge as the Dandelion Cardigan : in a DK weight yarn, with 22 stitches x 32 rows for 10 cm in 3.5mm needles (or the size that will give you the gauge). The pink version is knitted in Merino Extra Fine yarn from Drops. The advantage of this pattern? It’s a very quick-to-do project, accessible to beginners, that will allow you to use your yarn leftovers from the Dandelion Cardigan, or from your stash!

The pattern is available in the following sizes: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-2 years and 2-3 years. In addition, the pattern is available in French, and in English! You can get it via Ravelry.


In addition, you can participate in the Knit Along Dandelion with the bonnet, as well as with the cardigan! If you want more information, go on the group from my blog on Ravelry, and you have until October 22nd! Have a nice day!
