I just made this sweet crochet baby bonnet - the little flap is so that babies in hospital can be scanned easily. I believe these are also known as ventilation bonnets.
The instructions were given to me - but sadly I am not really sure who wrote the pattern - and I really want to share a link so that some of you might make some too.............
So can you help ? Do you know if this pattern belongs to a designer / or a charity group ? I tried to find the source on google and pinterest without any luck. Please leave me a comment if you can help.
This pattern was written by a talented crafter called Vanessa Heywood.
Happily, she has given me permission to share it with you. Thank you Vanessa.
Sew in ends, sew ribbons onto corners of bonnet for fastening and a button onto top/middle of border below where the flap ends.
Please check with your local NICU that they are able to use this before making,
as not all places are able to.
