Thread Thursday 3: Baby Bonnet


Last week I have finished another crochet project I have been working on: a baby bonnet.
I used my favorite yarn, the Woolike from Loops & Threads in charcoal. It is a super fine yarn (size 1) and super soft.
The pattern I used is this one:
Now, normally it is possible to adjust the hook size to get the gauge of the pattern but the yarn weight used in the pattern is so much different than the one I used, so I had a different approach.
Instead, I used the hook size recommended for my yarn and made a swatch to figure out the gauge for a 4" x 4" square (10 x 10 cm). Then I converted the whole pattern to this gauge, which means I had to add stitches as well as rows based on the ratio of my gauge stitches to the pattern stitches and my gauge's rows to the pattern's gauge's rows.

I think it turned out great, however I am not sure for which age this was for. It does not say in the pattern. I guess once the baby is there I just have to try it on :)
It measures 7" x 7" so maybe a 6 to 9 month?

For the next post I have a bunch of things and it may even turn into two more posts.
I was busy cutting fabric for a few patterns and now working on sewing them all.
Here a pic of the cut fabric - a bunch of work :D


Plus I am working on another fun project with sharpies and rubbing alcohol, as well as another bonnet. Yeah, I know, I cannot have less than 3 projects going at once, lol.
Thanks for reading. Hope
 you come back for the next post.
