My Pauline Bonnet is finished – very quick knit. I found the perfect use for those air-filled plastic packing things. Roll them up and they are great for blocking curved items. I blocked the bonnet flat until it was nearly dry and then put it on a roll of packing stuff to give it its curved shape and stop it from having a fold line across the top middle from being blocked flat.
I crocheted a little half circle ditty for the embellishment and then found an old pin that belonged to my grandmother to add to the center for a bit of old-fashioned looking bling. Also changed the icord edging a bit and added icord ties with tassels on the end.
