The Thandie Star Stitch Sun Bonnet is named in honor of my daughter, Thandie. Both (hat and girl) are penultimate Southern belles, sweet, lovely and dramatic. The textured design of the vintage inspired bonnet combines with the lustrous, light and breathable characteristics of Shine Sport to create an accessory that is lightweight and cool for summer, yet warm and cozy enough for fall and winter. The star stitch, featured all over the hat creates visual interest without competing with the loveliness of the yarn or the face of the wearer.
This is an intermediate design, suitable for crocheters with a little experience, but is not too complex for dedicated beginners.
Instructions are included for hat in five sizes, newborn, infant, toddler, child and adult, with option for a doll sized hat as well.
Size H/8 (5mm): crochet hook
