As a single item she is irrepressibly divine but when teamed with her sister pattern, Granny’s Favourite, you have the most heart-melting cute duo around.

Other Details: Florence is a seamless bonnet that is constructed from the front to the back. The stitches framing the face are worked first. The back of the connect is ten shaped using decreases similar to a sock heel. Stitches are picked up along the bottom of the bonnet to complete the edging. Finally, i-cord and applied i-cord are worked to finish the bonnet.
