New vintage pattern-dainty crochet baby bonnet

I got the first two patterns completed from the vintage magazines that my sisters found for me.

Dainty Crochet Baby Bonnet pattern from 1928

It is a pretty style with a medallion on the crown and flower medallions across the brim.

Dainty Crochet Baby Bonnet in Irish Crochet from 1928

This bonnet has a center crown of a rose surrounded by six leaves, one attached to each petal.

I will next work on a few done in luscious tatting!

Enjoy, Debby
