I receive many questions on my Fly Bonnet pattern on how to work some of the more confusing sections of the pattern. Sometimes I think its because this might be a gateway project for some, looking to expand their skills or simply to make a bonnet for a horse-crazy friend or kid.

As the Olympic Games are drawing to a close, I stopped to reflect upon how it showcases the various sports involved.
