This is a very, versatile hat. The first style can be worn by a larger fashion doll by just “perching” on top of the head. The second style is suitable for younger child as a sun-bonnet.
This form was designed so that two styles of bonnets can be made from it. The first style has an extremely wide front brim which tapers into a very narrow back brim.(pictured).
A different bonnet from the same form can be made by not working the back brim (See 046-NOBB). A ribbon brings the straw over sides of head as to protect the face from the sun and to keep it in place on the wearer’s head.
Step by step detailed instructions are included with every form.
Pictured hat is on a doll with head circumference of 9"-10".
Requires approximately 12 yards of 1/4 Inch Braid.
There is a smaller size available, 046-A, which will fit a 8.5"-9.5" head circumference.
