I'm working on the back part of the baby bonnet. And yes, just to remind you, I'm not using a published pattern....*I ask myself "WHY???!!!*
Normal is not one of my usual labels. I've been trying to figure out why I'm not satisfied with the older baby bonnet patterns. It may be because they appear to be a bit flimsy...but, I don't know that to be true. Oh, well I'll keep plugging along with my version.
Here is the progress so far.
As I'm tatting this row, I begin to think that I need the back to be a bit more 'oval' than half round. So, I believe I'm going to add a couple small flowers in the middle of the next round. This will begin to stretch the half round into an oval in addition to bringing the flowers of the top into the back of the bonnet.
Here's another look. So, what do you think? Half round or somewhat oval?
I will probably finish the row and add the flowers this evening. I'll show you the progress when I can figure out if it's the 'right' thing to do.
