New Pattern: Lilacs for Lila

DSC_0143

Way back in April, I knit this sweet little bonnet for Lila. I'm a sucker for knitted bonnets on babies, and I wanted something that would look vintage and gorgeous, but knit up super fast. It's perfect for using up DK weight yarn you have kicking around! It's easy to knit in a day or two, and you could make it even faster by using ribbon for the ties, instead of i cord. The pattern has sizing for babies 1 month- 4 years.

Check out the details on the Ravelry pattern page, here.

I'm due in two weeks and have been searching and searching for the perfect hat to knit for our daughter. As soon as I saw this one I knew I had found it! Thank you!

We are expecting our first grandchild early in 2014 and I am loving everything knitted Baby. This is a lovely bonnet and your model gets more beautiful with each piece of knitwear.

it's so lovely! i love the yarn with that stitch pattern!

i only wish i had someone to knit a bonnet for... it would look a little silly on a grown lady, right? maybe i'll knit one just to have it kicking around?

I am not a baby person at all but I just want to let you know that your baby is sooo cute! I read your posts about her multiple times sometimes and love looking at the pictures.

Lily looks adorable in lilac. I have saved the pattern and will be digging through the stash to find the right yarn to cast on a bonnet

Adorable! It's perfect on Lila! She is so cute and seems like such an aware baby...like she knows (or wants to know) everything that's going on. Thanks for sharing the pattern!

You have just made my WEEK. I haven't found many bonnet patterns that will fit toddlers, and I just love old fashioned, lacy little bonnets on darling little girls.

Thank you thank you thank you!
