Description

No Regency-era layette would be complete without a bonnet. This sweet little cap was inspired by an extant hand-embroidered infant’s bonnet from the Regency era found on www.vintagetextile.com. It is knitted at a very fine gauge but is so small that it won’t take too long to work up. The delicate lacy pattern bestows an heirloom quality—as certainly befits every baby.
