This Victorian-style lace and beaded baby bonnet is worked in one piece from the top of the crown downward to the ruffled edging. To shape the top and sides, the back stitches are put on a holder while the front and sides are worked back and forth, decreasing along the sides. The back stitches are then rejoined with the others and the ruffled edging is added, worked in the round. The beaded motifs are worked in bead knitting, i.e., the beads are knit into the stitches. The ties are made from twisted cords.
