Women's knit bonnet. The bonnet is knit with peach and turquoise wool yarn with stripes alternating horizontally and vertically. It has a long flap from the chin to the neck or shoulder area. The back of the bonnet gathers together in the back and at the center of the gather there is a blue silk bow. There are two white ribbons attached to the front on either side around the chin area for tying. The inside of the bonnet is lined with blue silk. Through a hole in the silk, white padding is visible. The bonnet is very soft and does not have a defined shape.
