the yarn

i bought this yarn (patons sunspun 100% cotton bouclé) from trademe as part of a lot of random cotton yarns. i had two balls of this, and decided to make a bonnet in the style of this one i made a while ago.

this one is slightly fancier: the band is moss stitch, the triangle is stockinette and the decreases are symmetrical (k2tog vs ssk!). see this article on knitty for more about different kinds of decreases.
