Crochet Baby Bonnet

My daughter recently gave birth to a little boy and everything has been grey, But I've also made this in a beautiful vibrant red yarn with white fur trim at the face all ready for the winter Christmas Season

You can actually make this ANY size by making sure the LENGH - measure roughly from the bottom of jawline over the head to the opposite jawline and WIDTH = side front of the face 
(just in front of the EAR to middle Back of head

I will be making the first size. 

Chain 43, (Loosley, even consider going up a hook size just for the starting chain, this will become the FRONT border where we work the FPHDC, BPHDC so it must be loose) 

Or chain until your length is achieved +3 extra chains

ROW 1: 
work 1 HDC in 3rd chain from hook, HDC in each chain until end.  Ch2 TURN (41 HDC)

ROW 2 to  ROW 12 (or until work measure total width required) 

work 1 HDC in each st, Chain 2 TURN,

HINT: (as you are working these rows start to really loosen off your tension,  if you find this hard to do, make a swap to a bigger hook size halfway @ ROW 6 

FASTEN OFF, leaving a long tail to join the LAST stitch in Row to FIRST stitch in Row (this will become the BACK seam that we will sew up to close) 

 BONNET BORDER for FACE (Change yarn if you wish to preferred color)

Join NEW Yarn at the FIRST chain at START.
