Angel Baby Bonnet Pattern

Angel Baby Bonnet Crochet Pattern
Medium size

This size pattern should fit about a 20 week baby. It matches well with our medium sized crochet outfit
I use Caron Simply Soft yarn and an F hook. If you use the thinner sport weight yarn it will be the tiny size to match the tiny size outfit. Bonnets of any size I'm sure would be appreciated.
I can typically finish a bonnet in about 10 minutes.
With yarn we try to avoid greens, yellows, all bright colors, and variegated yarn. For more information click HERE.


Ch 2

Row 1 - 8 hdc in the first chain - slip stitch to join
Row 2 - 2 hdc in each stitch - total of 16 - slip stitch to join
Row 3 - hdc in each stitch  - do not join - you won't join any more - chain 2 and turn instead
Row 4 - hdc in each stitch - chain 2 turn
Row 5 - hdc in each stitch - chain 2 for a boy bonnet (w/o ruffles) - chain 1 for a girl bonnet (w/ ruffles) - turn
Row 6 - boy or unruffled - 1 hdc, 2 hdc next stitch, repeat all the way around - end with a 1 hdc - even if you have to do 2 singles in a row.

Row 6 - girl or ruffled - slip stitch, 3 sc next stitch, repeat all the way around - end with a slip stitch - even if you need to do 2 in a row.

Tie off and add a ribbon or piece of yarn for a tie. I try to slip it in and out of the stitches in row 5.

Ch 2


Row 1 - 8 hdc in the first chain - slip stitch to join




Row 2 - 2 hdc in each stitch - total of 16 - slip stitch to join


Row 3 - hdc in each stitch  - do not join - you won't join any more - chain 2 and turn instead


Row 4 - hdc in each stitch - chain 2 turn

Notice how you're creating a kind of V shape - that's where the neck will be. It might feel weird - but it works.

Row 5 - hdc in each stitch - chain 2 for a boy bonnet (w/o ruffles) - chain 1 for a girl bonnet (w/ ruffles) - turn



Row 6 - boy or unruffled - 1 hdc, 2 hdc next stitch, repeat all the way around - end with a 1 hdc - even if you have to do 2 singles in a row.



Row 6 - girl or ruffled - slip stitch, 3 sc next stitch, repeat all the way around - end with a slip stitch - even if you need to do 2 in a row.



With the girl bonnet you need to make sure not to have it inside out. The ruffles should kind of be bumpy out towards the back and more scalloped side on the inside.

Here is the bonnet inside out - with the bumpier side of the ruffles on the inside.

Here is the bonnet right side out with the scalloped side on the inside.


Tie off and add a ribbon or piece of yarn for a tie. I try to slip it in and out of the stitches in row 5.
