That’s a Bo Bonnet !

Bo Bonnet

Pun intended for this improvisation of a hat, named “Bo bonnet”.

(Beau in French means “pretty”, and “bonnet” being the word for Hat)

Here is how I made it :

Material required:

Cold Evening (1)

Bonnet bleu - small-20

Instructions : 

Cast on 60 stitches (20 on each needle),

Place marker for the beginning of the round and join to work in rounds.

Start knitting in a 2/2 rib for 8″ (4cm)

Then keep knitting (garter stitch) for another 4.75 ” (12cm)

I had enough yarn leftover to make a pompom but I wasn’t sure I wanted one, so I left it this way (until I change my mind about it)
