Knitted Bonnet (Black)

The pattern used was inspired by my colleague, Grace Mendoza (my new hobby friend) and want to share to everyone.  

Materials:  Knitting needle size#4,  Bulky yarn, Tapestry needle 
Pattern:    Cast on 60 stitches (kid's size)
                Row 1-6  Knit 1, Purl 1 (ribbing)
                *Row 7- Knit and Row 8 - Purl
                Next rows - Repeat * (check your gauge, when you reach 4inches)
                Next 2 rows - Knit 2 together (right side, facing you) and Purl 2 together (wrong side)
                Last 3 stiches - Knit all together, Cut yarn leaving 18" tail.  Thread yarn and pull up tight.
                Then use remaining tail of yarn to sew seam.  Finish off.  

Happy knitting this time!! =) xo
