Pixie Shell Bonnet Newborn
"The other day I just picked up some yarn and started playing around with it. I wanted to figure out a way to increase shells in the round. My first effort produced too small of a start but I decided to keep going with it, just to practice and as I was stitching I realized that this was turning out to be a really cute design. I decided to turn it into a pixie style bonnet."
