In the same vintage pattern book that I found the sweet bunny crochet pattern for baby linens was this beautiful tatted baby bonnet pattern. This lovely bonnet is made with the addition of novelty braid. I was able to find vintage novelty braid online and you can sometimes find it on Etsy or eBay. Finer fabric and craft stores carry both vintage and new novelty braid and are good resources.
The pattern instructions as they were originally printed:
This is the novelty braid that I purchased and although it's not the small round medallions that are called for in the pattern, it does have the picots and the flexibility to work in the pattern.
This beautiful baby bonnet would be perfect for a Baptism or Christening and would make an extra special gift for baby, a treasured heirloom-to-be!
