Anne Orr's Baby Bonnet Completed!

The final round was very fun to do.

I recommend this old book " Tatting with Anne Orr", I use some old thread that I not sure the size but thinking is was 30, which made this Bonnet look like it would fit a one year old.  

The final round goes all the way around and this view is under the neck.

If you want a row by row view just check older posts, I really wish these older books had more pictures that is why I am posting this so you could use as a reference.  

Lots of rows repeated and made a cute puff, to me, cause I normally press things out, and you can not with bonnets.
(except for very back)

And this awaits to place on a wonderful baby somewhere :)
I am planning on making many more bonnets in future already have more patterns picked out.

  5. Love your work. Vintage patterns have all that bare thread and long picots which make them look so lacy and delicate. Well done.
