I am just finishing a baby afghan and this pattern will be made to go with it. Like you I love to crochet, garden, and animals. I have a tote I am filling up with afghans and hats to match just in case I am gone to glory when my 9 great grand kids have babies. I want them to remember me with new afghans from Granny. Thanks for the pattern am always looking for new ones. Donna

i love how your bonnet looks and would like to make one also but I'm confused about the 1st row. I can't do the MR so I only do what's in the parentheses? Thanks
Danae, yes, to start, ch 3, make 12 in 3rd chain from hook. Thank you for bringing the no chain 2 to my attention. At the end of each round, join with ss and ch 2.

Also I notice round 1and 2 doesn't have ch 2 at the end but the other rounds do. So am I supposed to ch 2 at the end of round 1 & 2?

I got lost in Row 2. (Row 2 - ch 3 turn, hdc in v st of previous row, v st 20 times). I am just ending up with a flat circle. When does it curve in around the head. I read Row 2 as ch 3, hdc in v st of previous row - is that the last of the 20 hdc from previous row? On row 3 I am not getting 20 v st. What does the ch 2, hdc end up being at the beginning of each row? Sorry I am just confused.

I appreciate this bonnet pattern very much. It is just what I was looking for as I had envisioned it but couldn't come up with measurements, ie. # of stitches, # of inches, starting point... many questions but no one to ask. Thank you again, and again, and again!
