You can vary this to however you like it. I like this style (the one I wrote out) the best.
I originally saw Chelle Grissam (luv2crochet.com) Granny Skull cap free pattern. I adapted it to make this bonnet style instead. Thank you Chelle! You must check out Chelleís patterns. I have purchased some and they are wonderful. click here to visit Chelle's site
