A little while ago I wrote a post about a knitting pattern for a baby bonnet that had a ribbon tie. A lady contacted me about her concerns that the ribbon was a choking hazard. So here is a slightly adapted version that I believe is more baby friendly. It has a button closure that can still fit various sizes
The only part which has been changed is the neck band. Follow the bonnet pattern ‘as is’.
For the neckband- using the same size knitting needles cast on 50 stitches.
rows 1,2 and 3 -knit
row 4- k2, yo, k2tog, k until end
rows 5,6 and 7 -knit
cast off. Sew seams of bonnet and neckband together.
sew on button
Extension cord- cast on 15 stitches
attach one end off the cord to the reverse of the neckband (behind the button) and sew a button onto the other end.
