Baby Bonnet Crochet Pattern

I picked up crochet to make Penny a sweater, and I've continued because Ifind it relaxing. The problem is, I'm not really a huge fan of the look of crochet. I'm really selective in what I attempt because there is some truly heinous crochet out there. Even when it's not a piece that's totally hid, the overall look is just not my style. At all.That being said, I stumbled across a pattern for a bonnet on crochetlatte.com that made my jaw drop. I NEEDED THIS BONNET I HAD TO OWN THIS BONNET. It took me hours and hours and hours to make the first one, and when I finished Itold Corinne, "It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, and I made it!"The reason it took me so long was the perfect storm of A) a beginner crocheter having absolutely no idea what she was doing and B) a pattern full of mistakes. It took me making about 6 bonnets to sort it all out, and so I nowpresent my modified version of crochetlatte's Apricot Bonnet.

H/8 (5 mm) for up to 3 months G/6 (4.25) for newborn (quite small) Remember, it all depends on your gauge. Don't sue me if the sizing is different for you. My gauge must be tight because the original pattern says to use a 4.5 hook for up to 6 months, but the one in the pictureswas made with a 5mm and is already on the verge of being too small for her 2-and-a-half-month-old head, so.

Beginning puff stitch: ch2. *Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull through and bring yarn up to height of rest of stitches* Repeat once more. Yarn over and pull through all loops on hook.

Puff stitch: *Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull through and bring yarn up to height of rest of stitches* Repeat twice more. Yarn over and pull through all loops on hook.
