How long does it take to crochet a baby bonnet?

Crocheting a baby bonnet, usually take 1 hour to 0ne day. This depends largely on so many variables which range from the experience of the crocheter to the type of pattern (the ease and the type of stitches used) to the size (weight) of yarn.

About the yarn used for this baby bonnet pattern

My friends at Furls sent me some beautiful, luxurious yarn and I could not resist designing this bonnet with the yarn. This yarn, called Wander Acrylic Yarn, is their first acrylic yarn and unlike most other 100% Acrylic yarn that I have used, this one is the best so far.
