The idea for this bonnet came about as a result of a query by a dear lady named Andrea. She was looking for a bonnet pattern to make but the specific pattern she was looking for online was no longer available. I decided to give designing a try. Yes, I have made designs of my own in the past but never a design FOR another knitter for the purposes of sharing. I'm not a pattern writer, just a knitter with some skills :) WENDY G to the rescue! Wendy took a look at my design and offered to write the pattern up on my behalf for publication. She took my rag-tag notes, made sense of them, knitted the pattern wrote it up, knitted the pattern AGAIN then passed the pattern along in not one but TWO yarn weights. Wendy is British by birth and now lives in Australia. While I can knit using British terms many Americans cannot so as a favor to me she wrote a pattern up specifically for my American friends. She's done all of this without charge so I owe her a massive debt of thanks. This pattern is the copyright of WENDY G.

Wendy and I designed this as a pattern for charity and gift giving. We only ask that if you sell one give Wendy G and Lyn Wilson, credit for the work AND PLEASE! donate one to a local children's charity. Here is the American version:
