Vintage Baby Bonnet (Pixie Hat)
http://www.antiquecrochetpatterns.com/crochet-bonnet.html. First written in 1915 so I had no idea what size hook to use or ply of yarn. I have recently found out that the yarn they used was 2 ply. Anyways I used a 3.50mm hook and 8ply yarn and it came out in a size that should fit a 1-2 year old. Obviously I didn't do the fold over and added braids. I did 14 rows in the purple and 3 in the white. The pattern for the rose can be found here http://the-dark-knit.blogspot.co.nz/2008/11/crochet-roses.html.
