Miracle of life and Mother’s Day Gifts (Free pattern/Patrón gratis)


The last few months have been very busy for us. We became parents of our little girl in December. She’s the most amazing thing that has happened to us, the miracle of life.


My pregnancy was quite good, so after the 1st trimester I was able to make clothes for her, I tried to knit and sew as much as possible, some of them lasted very little and some others still fit nicely.


One of those things was this Sweet Stripes Bonnet on Ravelry; I made a couple of them for a baby up to 3 mo.


To celebrate Mother’s Day I’d like to offer the pattern for free to my readers. Whether you’re a mum, a grandma, an aunt or just a friend you can make as many as you like, and we’d love to see all of them.
