Many thanks to Jan Dunmyer and Carolyn Groves for bringing this pattern to the class. This is a pineapple baby bonnet from the April 1925 Needlecraft magazine. There were 4 tatted baby bonnets in that issue by Anna Hoskins. Let's use this pattern as a practical exercise in rewriting and modernizing antique tatting patterns.
