The Little Maiden Bonnet was originally designed by Danyel Pink.

The Gracie bonnet is simple to make and is super cute! This bonnet is intended as a photography prop, due to the long braids; or to be worn with adult supervision. The pattern includes sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months. You’ll need a small amount of WW yarn and an I hook. You will love making these!
