Pretty In Pink Baby Bonnet

Bonnets give a bit of postmodern flair to a classic design and truly substantial protection from the elements, this bonnet will keepyour little girl warm, stay on her head and add a bit of funky fashion flair to her wardrobe! 

This bonnet is knitted in a multi coloured baby soft double knitting type yarn in shades of pink and lilac.I love using a multicoloured yarn and particularly love the delicate shading in this yarn.
