This bonnet has a very flexible fabric so it can fit all different sizes of newborns. It’s a quick knit, so perfect for a last-minute baby shower gift. This knit bonnet is knit in one piece and can have yarn or ribbon ties. Remember, any bonnet with ties should always be worn under supervision as it could be a choking hazard.
