My friend, Sara, is due to welcome a little girl into the world this October. I offered to make her baby a head covering (haha) of her choosing, and she picked the Wintergreen Bonnet. I took it upon myself to give her future child the nickname Lemmie. Brazen, I know. I think it’s adorable. It’s her initials cute-ified. 😛
I think the most appropriate color for a baby named Lemmie is a lemony yellow. As such, I picked up a hank of Plymouth Yarn Worsted Merino Superwash in the “Butter” colorway for the body and used Malabrigo Rios in “Plomo for the edging and icord.
I had to go up to size 7 needles to get somewhat close to gauge. The size 5 needles called for in the pattern resulted in a bonnet fit for a hamster. I think the proportions are a little bit off, too. It looks too long and too short. The back is also kind of strange, but it might fit better on a smaller baby. I tried it on Ronan, but he’s 8 months old and has a pretty big head. Hopefully it’ll fit a newborn perfectly!
