Try, try again


















I learned a couple new skills on this top-down bonnet from Hello Yarn. First, the figure 8 cast-on which honestly looked like a joke and took me several tries to execute. And then, after completing the bonnet and taking it off the needles, I learned to bite the bullet and frog the entire thing. I have never undone an entire project before, and not because my projects are always perfect but I'd rather live with the imperfections.

This hat was small enough and I wanted it to look right so I tried again, realizing where I'd messed up on the increases. Yarn: Lorna's laces. Colorway: Lost label syndrome.

I have toyed with the idea of making this little bonnet. It looks so cute and sweet and I also have never tried a figure 8 cast on. Yours looks so cute and I love the colors!! And who doesn't love Lorna's Laces?!?! YUM!
