The Toot Sweet Newborn Bonnet requires just 30 yards of super chunky yarn, about a yard of ribbon, and some embellishments. You can make the bonnet and embellishments in less than an hour (assuming you don’t have 3 other kids interrupting you every few minutes, ahem), and it’s sure to be a hit at any baby shower. No need to tell them just how quick and easy it was to make!

    Would the pattern need adjusted if using non chunky yarn. I had planned on using 4ply yarn!
    thank you for sharing.

    I have used this pattern several times, using different finishing “touches”. This time I wrote a pattern for a matching pair of newborn Leg Warmers. Thank you so much for sharing your patterns! Pics can be found on my facebook page as I saw no way to leave them here, at From This to That! Melissa’s Crochet & Crafts. I did however post the most current one on your moogly f/b page. :)

    I’m a new hooker. Lol
    Just started to teach myself about two months ago. I’m LOVING it! I just made this bonnet and am really impressed with how adorable it is and how simply it works up. I used Lion Brand Yarn (Baby’s First in white). It turned out beautifully! Thank you!!
