baby Ella

The Ella hat was big news for me this winter (purchased from etsy here).  It’s a great pattern and, surprisingly to me but then who am I to judge?, two Ellas have been bought by men. For themselves.  Young men, guys really, not big burly rugby player types.  How cute is that!?

Anyway, when Nicola asked me to make two baby bonnets for her 6-month old niece in Durban, I thought I’d try the same pattern but using thinner yarn and a smaller hook.

Ta-da! Worked perfectly:

And on the magical little person herself:

I mean, look at that face!!!  I should be paying that girl to model for me :-)

    Oh Jill! You should get the rights to that photo and hang it in your booth so everyone can see how adorable the hats look on actual babies. Not that you would need any help with selling your amazing hats. ;) Love them and you. Tamara

        Jill, you will definitely love making the bonnet. It is so quick and easy. I even love the flower and I’m picky with my flowers. :) Love and Hugs, Tamara
