Round 1: Chain 5, then work 3 dc into the center of the ring, then ch 2. Work the (3 dc, ch 2) two more times into the center of the ring. Work 2 more dc into the center of the ring, and join with a sl st to close.

Round 2: In any corner, tie on a new color then ch 5. Work two dc into the center of the ring. Work a dc in each of the next three stitches.

Work the next side the same way, working a dc in the next three stitches, then work the next corner by working 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc all in the same space. Keep working in this manner all the way around the square. At the corner where the round began, work one more dc in the corner space, Join with a sl st to close round.

Round 3: In any corner, tie on a new color then ch 5. Work 2 dc in the same space. Work a dc in each stitch across the top (there will be seven this time), Work the corner the same way as the previous round (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) Keep going in this manner all the way around, working the corners and the sides as before. When reaching the last corner, work one more dc, and join with a slip stitch to close.

Repeat round 3 once more for bonnet sizing as shown or repeat round 3 as many times as needed for desired sizing (see "sizing" section above).

Fasten off and sandwich squares together so right sides are facing outward. Beginning at the top left corner, whip stitch over to top right corner, then down to bottom right corner.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

Weave ribbon in and out of the front part of bonnet as shown to later be tied at chin.  Trim ribbon ends at an angle for a finished look.

Note: Please supervise child at all times while wearing tie on hats of any kind.  Happy crocheting lovelies!
