I got this pattern from a neighbor who helped people in the ward make bonnets for trek a few years ago. I like the shape, and the construction is fine, but when I tried it on, it's just kinda weird (you can see the brim is HUGE).
The pattern would be really easy to convert to PDF, but I don't know from where it originated, so I'd better not post it.
You would think the bonnet would be considered more authentic because it uses ties instead of elastic. However, read Liz's comment on this post about the pattern. She clears it up nicely :).
The back ties are more for looks because they don't really adjust anything. I'm liking the fit/adjustability more and more of the authentic slat bonnet.
**** "likeabrokenumbrella" suggested this would be a good Acadian/Cajun style bonnet, so here's the pattern. The scanner's being a bit dumb, so I couldn't scan to PDF, so hopefully you can enlarge the images enough to fit on a 8.5 x 11.
