Hugs and Kisses

£4.00

by Susan Crawford

Includes three patterns for a dutch bonnet, scarf and mittens, knitted in beautifully soft alpaca and silk yarn.

The stitch used is a simple yet extremely effective slip stitch which has the appearance of kisses. All three pieces are multi sized and include a fitting for 11-13 year olds.

The Dutch bonnet was an extremely popular style of head wear in the late 40s and early 50s.
