Here is a fun hat pattern that looks similar to a bonnet however this updated version is very trendy. Not only is it fun to look at with the pop of color, but the texture is also visually pleasing.
As is the hat should fit from 21” – 23”
This hat should take between 4 hours to complete depending on your skill level.
