Norwegian Morning or Bonnet Cap

I've been working on the interpretation for this cap. The original directions are in Godey's. Here is my finished cap. I used Filatura Di Crosa Nirvana Extrafine Merino (lace weight) wool, No. 3 knitting needles and a no. 2 crochet hook for the border. The bows are silk.

Knitting with lace weight was a it catches on everything and it takes a light touch to knit.  I've made a number of these caps, using a 4 ply fingering. They are similar in the  finished size. There are a number of interpretations out there for this cap.
