Revised 3/7/19 - Missing row 6-7
Today's post is on an adorable little newborn Bonnet. My dear friend had a baby girl so I wanted to knit a cute little bonnet for her. I used Hobby Lobby's I Love this Cotton yarn. This is one of my favorite (and more affordable) cotton yarn.

Divide the 37 stitches evenly onto 3 double pointed needles. The first 2 will have 12 stitches and the last needle will have 13 stitches.
Join round by working an invisible join:
sl1 on left hand needle purl-wise
pass 2nd stitch on right hand needle over the just slipped stitch
place the first slipped stitch back on the left hand needle.
You should now have 36 sts (12 on each dpn). Use your 4th dpn to knit with.
For each needle: k all sts until last 2 sts and then k2tog. See instructions below:
Round 1: k10, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 2: k9, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 3: k8, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 4: k7, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 5: k6, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 6: k5, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 7: k4, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 8: k3, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 9: k2, k2tog on every dpn around
Round 10: k1, k2tog on every dpn around
Using a tapestry needle, insert through remaining sts as if to knit & cinch up. Weave in ends.
Using your crochet hook, Fasten on the corner of the bonnet.
Chain 40 sts or as long as you'd like. slip stitch into 2nd chain from your hook and back across. sl st into the bonnet (where you started).
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Repeat for other side.
