Materials Used: In worsted to aran weight yarn you will need approximately 85 (100, 120, 145) yards or 75 (90, 110, 130) meters. If you choose a contrasting color yarn for the button band and hem, it should be about 20% of your total yardage. If you choose to work the bonnet in stripes with CC borders your yarn should be divided as follows: color A=40%, color B=40%, CC=20%. Darning needle for weaving in ends, and 1 button about - 3/4" in diameter (optional for Button Tab closure).
