This is a crochet bonnet I've been working on for Max in his official color - turquoise! :)
I chose a lovely yarn with sparkles woven in it, and some matching beads to weave into the finished bonnet. The pattern I used had to be modified a couple of times because Max has a smaller sized head (more cob than horse), but his ears are a regular horse ear length! It took a few fittings but it's finally done and it fits great!!
Early stage without the decorative front
The front is done, ears still wip
At this point I had crocheted and re-crocheted those darn ears so many times I wanted to pull my hair out! So I gave up and bought some turquoise linen. It was a good decision - easier, faster and it looks better!
Tah dah! All done!
And on the model himself....what does he think?
